Tap Memory Strategies for Learning Success
On a daily basis, people perform countless tasks without thinking about the act of doing them. By understanding the mechanisms of memory, including how information is stored in long-term memory, you can create optimal and effective learning experiences. In this issue of TD at Work, Alexandria Clapp and Lauren Devine explain why memory is such an integral part of learning and ways to layer memory strategies into your learning design and delivery. Further, they:
- Detail how humans encode, store, and retrieve memories.
- Unpack how forgetting supports people’s learning abilities.
- Offer tools for learners to help them learn.
The Tools & Resources in this issue are a spaced learning scheduling template, interleaving and retrieval template, and a bonus reinforced learning practice exercise.
