Strategies to Support Robust Learning

Presenter(s):
Gwen Gorzelsky, Executive Director, The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT), CSU
Description:
This workshop defines the three major aspects contributing to robust learning (long-term recall, transfer, and acceleration of future learning) and summarizes findings from a 2013 survey of prior research on ten learning techniques thought to promote robust learning. By presenting highlights from explanations of five techniques that have moderate or high utility in promoting robust learning, the workshop will introduce attendees to techniques they may wish to apply. The explanation will include key points on where each technique is generalizable (and where it isn't), as well as on why it's effective. Attendees will work in small groups to consider how one technique (of the group's choice) may relate to their teaching or other endeavors, to develop possible applications, and to raise questions or issues for further discussion by the the whole group. Please register to attend as capacity is limited. To register please contact Merinda McLure at: merinda.mclure@colostate.edu
