Problem solving in schools

13 May 2008

The Northern Territory Research and Innovation Board has approved a small grant to CDU’s Professor Graham Pegg, Dean of the Faculty of Education, Health and Science, for a research project to investigate problem solving skills development in primary schools.

The study would help to determine the feasibility of introducing a problem solving area of study into the primary school curriculum and would potentially be undertaken by a Master of Education student.

Key objectives

  1. Economic Development
  2. Social and Cultural Development
  3. Environmentally Sustainable Development
