Megan Sumeracki, Ph.D.

Retrieval-Based Learning Strategies from the Laboratory to the Classroom
Thursday, April 26
12:45–1:50 PM • Karp 105
 
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
 
Decades of cognitive research can inform classroom learning. However, the research is not always translated into practice. During the talk, Dr. Sumeracki will describe the way in which cognitive research spans the laboratory to the classroom, providing examples from her own program of research on retrieval-based learning. She will then discuss ways that she and her colleagues have worked to bridge the gap between learning research and classroom practice through The Learning Scientists.
