Overcoming internal biases to identify areas and strategies for improvement

  • First, there are common misconceptions about how to study and review course materials in order to better remember them. Often, these take the form of study techniques that work in the short term (but not over the longer-term), like cramming, or using mnemonic devices. In contrast, practices like distributed learning (or spaced repetition) and retrieval practice (quizzing yourself) are more effective for developing long-term retention. …

  1. Distributed learning — i.e. learning that is spaced out over time
  2. Retrieval practice — sometimes called ‘active learning’ or ‘the testing effect,’ where you ask yourself to actively recall the material
  3. Timing the intervals between learning sessions based on the principle of ‘desirable difficulty,’ where you review the information just as it is beginning to fade from memory — this is the optimal time to strengthen those memory…
