Retrieval Practice – Transform Teaching with the Science of Learning

September 28, 2018

Retrieval Practice – Transform Teaching with the Science of Learning
https://www.retrievalpractice.org/

“Retrieval practice” is a learning strategy where we focus on getting information out. Through the act of retrieval, or calling information to mind, our memory for that information is strengthened and forgetting is less likely to occur. Retrieval practice is a powerful tool for improving learning without more technology, money, or class time. On this website (and in our free Retrieval Practice Guide), we discuss how to use retrieval practice to improve learning. Established by nearly 100 years of research, retrieval practice is a simple and powerful technique to transform teaching and learning. In order to improve learning, we must approach it through a new lens – let’s focus not on getting information “in,” but on getting information “out.” This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™.
