Sept 20, 2016: How Do People Learn? Using Cognitive Psychology to Improve Education

7 October 2016

When students sit down to study, are they using strategies that lead to long-term, durable learning?

In this presentation we discuss those principles and ways that students and instructors can use empirically supported techniques in their studying and teaching.
