Educational practice does not, for the most part, rely on research findings. Instead, there¿s a preference for relying on our intuitions about what¿s best for learning. But relying on intuition may be a bad idea for teachers and learners alike. This accessible guide helps teachers to integrate effective, research-backed strategies for learning into their classroom practice. The book explores exactly what constitutes good evidence for effective learning and teaching strategies, how to make evidence-based judgments instead of relying on intuition, and how to apply findings from cognitive psychology directly to the classroom. Including real-life examples and case studies, FAQs, and a wealth of engaging illustrations to explain complex concepts and emphasize key points, the book is divided into four parts: Evidence-based education and the science of learning Basics of human cognitive processes Strategies for effective learning Tips for students, teachers, and parents. Written by "The Learning Scientists" and fully illustrated by Oliver Caviglioli, Understanding How We Learn is a rejuvenating and fresh examination of cognitive psychology's application to education. This is an essential read for all teachers and educational practitioners, designed to convey the concepts of research to the reality of a teacher's classroom.… (mais)

If you haven’t really acquainted yourself yet with the scholarship of teaching and learning, and the latest research developments on the subject, this book is a good introduction to that. A big chunk of the book is a review of the research on the subject of perception, attention, and memory, as a way to push back on the myths and misunderstandings that still circulate about learning, especially among our students.

Based on that review, the book then goes into specific strategies for effective learning. If you are familiar with other books such as Making It Stick or Small Teaching, nothing presented in this book is entirely new but there are still details and examples worthy of interest.

So, what are the strategies for effective learning?

1. Planning
1.1. Spaced practice: spreading study activities over time as opposed to cramming (which is bad)
1.2. interleaving: switching between topics while studying as opposed to mass practice.
2. Development of understanding
2.1. Elaboration: asking how and why questions about the topic under review
2.2. Concrete examples, especially to illustrate abstract concepts
2.3. Dual coding, combining visual and textual or spoken elements, while avoiding cognitive overload
3. Reinforcement
3.1 Retrieval practice that brings learned information to mind from long-term memory.
There is obviously no single good ways to implement those strategies. What we do depends on our respective fields, the level of the class (1000-level v. 2000-level), and the amount of time we have. These strategies can be implemented in class or set up so the students can use them on their own time.

While the set of chapters on strategies deals with the research and its results, the last section of the book includes three chapters: tips for teachers, tips for students, and tips for parents (the book is not specifically about higher education but is entirely relevant to it). If, after reading about the strategies, you are not sure where to start, the tips might be useful.

So, again, if you are kinda new to this, this is a good introduction, and the visual aspect (props to the authors for taking their own advice and using dual coding) makes the reading less dry. However, I don’t know who picked the color palette, but holy lack of contrast, that was a bad choice. Some of the font is super small and very light blue, and if you are like me and your eyesight ain’t what it used to be, there will be a few unhappy reading moments. ( )

Interesting look at what science says about how we should set ourselves up best to learn.
Short, regular reviews, quizzes, interleaving different subjects, etc. ( )

I really enjoyed this book because it shares the research from the field of cognitive psychology to share what works in terms of learning. Some key insights that I have gained from this book is that as a learner it is beneficial to try a more effective strategy than just highlighting and reading. What can be more powerful? Retrieval practice where without looking at any notes, I try to recall what I think I know about a topic, and then see where the gaps are in my knowledge and then seek to review the material and then again do retrieval practice. Other strategies are interleaving study where you study multiple ideas instead of just one idea at a time and you look for differences and similarities. Another strategy is elaboration where you ask yourself HOW/WHY questions. Another is spacing out your study in mini sessions over a period of time instead of cramming all at once. Dual coding is another where you combine visuals with text. ( )
