Summary

To progress to more complex understanding in science, it is essential that learners have the ability to retain and recall knowledge. Cognitive science research supports four main theories that can improve retention and recall of information: cognitive load, spaced review, retrieval practice and elaboration. During this course, you will learn various techniques that will allow you to apply these theories to your teaching and improve the knowledge and recall of your learners. 

Outcomes

You will learn: 

 

1.   

How the working memory and long-term memory interact to process and store information 

2.   

The cognitive science theories that underpin retention and recall of knowledge 

 

3.   

How cognitive science theories such as cognitive load, spaced review, retrieval practice and elaboration can be applied to your teaching and how these can help build deeper understanding in science
