S529: Learning Learning-Theory in Splash Spring 2018 (Apr. 21, 2018)
Can you spend less time studying and still learn the same amount? Scientists have discovered a number of ways to speed learning and boost memory. In this class, you will learn how to improve your own class performance using techniques backed by science. We will investigate a few learning tools and the pioneering experiments that lead to their discovery. Sample topics: recall practice effects, spacing effects, the generation effect, transfer of learning
