Problem solving – what have we learned since Polya’s introspection? [Altered]

Due to the current global situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic this event is not going ahead in its original form of face-to-face seminar. However, Alan Schoenfeld, who has cancelled his planned trip to the UK has agreed to give his presentation as the first ever CRME webinar. This will be streamed live 4:30 – 6:00 pm (GMT) on Thursday 26th March. Please join us. The webinar will be available to view shortly after the live event.

75 years have passed since George Pólya introduced the idea of heuristic strategies, rules of thumb for effective problem solving, in his classic book How to Solve It. What do we know now that we didn’t know then?

The bigger question is: How do we create learning environments in which students learn to be effective problem solvers?

This lecture will be presented by Professor Alan Schoenfeld, University of California, Berkeley on Thursday 26 March, 4.30–6pm.

This event will be hosted in C49, Dearing Building Jubilee Campus.

All are welcome to attend this free event, for more information or to register please visit the official event site.
