How do we help students make learning “stick”? Retrieval-based learning may be the answer. Purdue researcher Jeffrey Karpicke, PhD, studies how the mind and memory work and suggests that repeated, spaced retrieval leads to greater learning results. This approach to learning could influence curriculum design, learning session organization, and assessment activities.

Jeffrey recently presented on this topic at the IAMSE Annual Meeting. If you who attended Jeff’s IAMSE plenary session, what strategies are you exploring?
