Our research

The background for this project is shaped by two major concerns: societal concerns over young people’s health and body dissatisfaction, and concerns for curriculum renewal where a new cross-curricular theme ‘Public Health and Life Skills’ (PHLS) is introduced in school. The ‘Literacies for Health and Life Skills’ (HLS) project aims to develop and implement a new didactic approach that will enable pre-service teachers to facilitate the development of young people’s health and life skills. 

To do this the project is divided into six work packages, each with a different area of expertise regarding the aims of the project. These are all described individually in the menu, in both English and Norwegian.
