“Forgetting is natural, but learning how to learn can slow it down.”
Abstract: Research in cognitive science has revealed a number of principles that enhance student learning. This talk will summarize key findings from this research, focusing in particular on the principles of retrieval practice—how recalling information from memory strengthens learning of that information—and spacing—how the scheduling of learning activities that are distributed in time benefits long-term learning. Along with laboratory-based studies that showcase these principles, classroom-based studies will be discussed that demonstrate the utility of retrieval practice and spacing in real educational environments, and the various ways that educators can implement retrieval and spacing to enhance learning of a variety of materials.
Dr. Shana Carpenter, a professor of Psychology at ISU, will talk about key findings from her research focusing on how retrieval practice and spacing strengthen learning. The seminar is open to faculty and students. Lunch will be provided for the first 50 attendees.
