Can psychology help us to learn better? That's the question tackled by the new edition of PsychCrunch, the podcast from our Research Digest blog.
The presenter Christian Jarrett discovers the best evidence-backed strategies for learning, including the principle of spacing, the benefits of testing yourself and teaching others. He also hears about the perils of overconfidence and the lack of evidence for popular educational ideas like “learning styles” and “brain gym”.
The guests, in order of appearance, are:
Nate Kornell, associate professor at Williams College
Abby Knoll, doctoral student at Central Michigan University.
