Study Strategies that Science Says Work

In research experiments on learning, there are four strategies that work significantly better than other, more popular study techniques. This workshop series will explore these four stratagies during two SkillShops. In part I, participants will explore spaced learning and retreival. Participants will create a spaced learning study plan with interleaving for their toughest class and practice the blank page exercise. In part II partcipants will explore explaining and preparing to teach. Participants will practice explaining difficult concepts as a way to check for understanding and explore ways of preparing to teach.


  • Part I: Spaced Learning with Interleaving and Retrieval - Tuesday April 7th (3pm or 4 pm)
  • Part II: Explaining and Preparing to Teach - Wednesday, April 15th (3pm or 4 pm)
