This short presentation focuses on three effective (but overlooked and underused) strategies to enhance student learning: 1. Retrieval Practice—students try to recall what they learned previously. Trying to remember what you learned previously actually improves learning more than re-studying the material 2. Distributed Practice—students learn more when they distribute study over time rather than cram all at once 3. Worked Examples—students study worked out examples of problems. In the early phases of learning new material students benefit much more from studying worked out examples than working out solutions themselves.
