Assessment and implementation of effective learning techniques

Alice Kim

For over 100 years, psychologists have been developing and evaluating learning techniques that are both easy to implement and could help students achieve their learning goals. However, many educators and students do not put these techniques into practice because they are not aware of them. Instead, in many cases, ineffective learning techniques are employed and consequently undermine students’ learning achievement. In this session, we will critically review the efficacy and utility of various learning techniques, including some that have been documented to be most popular among students and others that show great promise based on laboratory studies.
