Jorg Huijding, associate professor of Clinical Child and Family Studies hosts the MOOC. Huijding and various Utrecht-based researchers, such as evolutionist Frans de Waal, offer participants insights about the many aspects of child development. With this MOOC you will learn to think more holistically about this subject. And it offers you new and surprising angles to approach developmental issues. As one of the participants told us: "I appreciated how we considered multiple domains of development at different levels."
