How can we get students to remember what we've taught them?
This is one of the biggest challenges, both of a linear exam system and for progression between phases (we might even hope some of their scientific knowledge will stick beyond school!)
In this session I will briefly explain why we have been utilising the principles of spaced repetition and interleaving in my department and school. I will share some easy practical ways of integrating these into lessons and homeworks, with examples and student feedback. There will also be some time to reflect on how you might use these in your setting, and perhaps even begin to produce a resource to take back and share.
The key outcome: help students to make learning stick, so that they can link new ideas to prior concepts more effectively and reduce the stress of revision.
