TLC Fall Workshop Series - Reframing Students’ Failed Attempts to Remember: Encouraging Use of the Testing Effect

The testing effect - the attempt (successful or not) - to retrieve information - is a powerful strategy effective for learners in all disciplines at any level of expertise. But unsuccessful retrieval attempts feel bad ("I should have known that.") These negative feelings may drive students away from testing to more comforting but far less productive practices like re-reading ("This seems familiar - I must really know this!") In this presentation, by Brian Smith, we will share ways to help students reframe their negative feelings as positive indicators of learning. 

This workshop will be held by Zoom: https://simpson.zoom.us/j/4531135962?from=addon
