Accelerate academic growth: Revolutionise teaching strategies with our research-informed Retrieval Practice CPD workshop
Backed by extensive studies, Retrieval Practice has consistently proven to be the most potent technique for strengthening memory and facilitating long-term retention. By encouraging students to recall previously-learned information, we enhance memory traces and optimize knowledge transfer to their long-term memory.
Our CPD workshop dives deep into the latest research on Retrieval Practice. Through interactive sessions, engaging discussions, and practical demonstrations, your teachers will learn how to empower their students with the power of Retrieval Practice, enabling them to achieve higher levels of mastery and academic success.
