Details

Imagine a student coming to you after an exam claiming they studied for XX+ hours but still did poorly. When you ask them about their study quality rather than simply the quantity, they reveal that their only study strategy involved re-reading their notes from class over and over in the same order. If you have had this experience one too many times, come learn about how research on memory encoding and retrieval can inform more effective study strategies and how to implement helpful techniques into your classes.

Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe cognitive psychology research on memory encoding and retrieval
  • Translate this research into effective study strategies
  • Generate activities/exercises to immediately implement into your classes

Facilitated by: Laura Getz, Assistant Professor of Psychological Sciences
