Improve learning with five memory-boosting strategies
Memory is a curious thing. You can remember all the words to your high school fight song and all the digits of your very first phone number, but you can forget something you read this morning or the name of someone you’ve met several times.
Yet as capricious as our recollections can be, there are also proven ways to manipulate and develop our ability to remember. When we use those strategies in our teaching, we can help students learn more and perform better on exams.
If you are ready to help your students grasp course material and recall it when in matters, you’re ready for What Key Concepts Improve Student Learning and Memory?—a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Kristin L. Roush, Ph.D.
Roush, a passionate and engaging instructor, shows you how to incorporate cueing, the testing effect, semantic encoding, peer teaching, and the spacing effect into your teaching. Together, these five relatively simple yet powerful techniques will help your students retain more information and show what they know on their assignments, quizzes, and exams.
