Guess what? 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!
“Make It Stick offers practical advice for learners of all ages, at all stages of life… and points the way forward with a very real prospect of tangible and enduring benefits.”
