FREE evidence-based revision resource (a highly technical piece of blue card…)

10 February 2018

…even if you space, interleave, retrieve and elaborate throughout a curriculum sequence, you still need to consolidate learning as exams draw nearer, and make sure that knowledge is accessible and applicable.
And if you haven’t done all this spacing and retrieving and interleaving throughout the course (because, let’s face it, most of us haven’t!… either because we felt we didn’t have time or because we didn’t know how to… or because we just didn’t know about this stuff) then effective revision is even more important.

For those more familiar with some key areas of research, the book expands on these areas further as well as introducing some new areas to be aware of. Personally I feel relatively research literate and yet still found the book incredibly insightful. […]
