Research from cognitive psychology on attention, memory and learning has informed our pedagogical decisions to develop evidence-based interventions in education. A key focus has been to promote learning that is durable – extending beyond short-term testing into long-term retention of information that remains with the student after the final exam. In this presentation, I will discuss how academic performance is significantly improved with effective learning strategies that have been established in controlled lab studies and translated to the classroom. These practices work by strengthening long-term retention and depend on instructors to implement effective instructional design and students to take an active role in their own learning.

This is the keynote for Teaching and Learning Month:

Join us as our 2024 Teaching and Learning Month with several sessions facilitated by Dr. Joe Kim.  This  series will offer an opportunity to focus on your teaching as well as your personal well-being.  Lunch will be provided to allow participants time to connect with colleagues from across the university.
