Event Details

Monday, April 16, 2018
3:30-4:30 p.m.
Recent research into how people learn and remember shows that many of us go about learning in the wrong ways. It turns out that most commonly used strategies for learning are of low value, and the most effective strategies are counterintuitive. Author of "Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning," Peter Brown will summarize four big ideas from the findings of cognitive science and describe strategies that instructors and students can apply to increase student learning and performance.
