Strategies for Effective Learning: Overview of strategies for effective learning

  • Perth Convention Centre 100 Mounts Bay Road Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

In the first session, I will discuss how students, teachers, and parents can benefit from decades of research in cognitive psychology. I will give a basic overview of attention and memory, and describe 6 particularly effective learning strategies, including spaced practice (revisiting previously studied information multiple times) and retrieval practice (bringing information to mind from memory).

In the second session, I will delve deeper into the nuances and practical concerns involved in applying effective learning strategies in the classroom and at home. I’ll cover how students can plan ahead to space out their studying with our help, and how we can all encourage students to find opportunities to practice retrieval.
