Plenary Address

Plenary: You Must Remember This: Using the Science of Memory to Support Learning in a Wired World by Dr. Michelle Miller

Abstract: Today’s faculty tend to steer clear of memory and memorization in their classrooms, preferring to focus on higher-level thinking skills and practical application of knowledge. But do these goals have to be mutually exclusive? New research suggests that teachers really can have it both ways, using research-based techniques to strengthen both what students know and their ability to use that knowledge. In this interactive plenary talk, cognitive psychologist Michelle Miller will invite faculty to look at memory in a new light, offering tools and techniques that help students build a solid base of knowledge efficiently, quickly, and with a side order of fun.
