Cramming and highlighting aren’t the golden tickets to long-term recall. Psychological research shows that people often use ineffective strategies to learn and remember. Washington University Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences, Henry Roediger, talks about why this happens, discusses which common strategies are ineffective and should be avoided, and describes strategies that promote effective learning and long-term remembering. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this insightful talk on the science of memory and Making It Stick! Books available for purchase and signing by the author.
