Dr. Vishton starts many of his Psychology courses with a discussion of human memory research. Performing well in any course involves understanding and encoding information into the brain, and then being able to retrieve and use that information later. Human memory is fantastic at certain information encoding tasks and strikingly bad at others. By understanding how human memory systems work (or don’t) students can get more out of their own brains and master course material more efficiently and completely. Dr. Vishton will present an overview of how he presents this material in his courses. He looks forward to talking with an assembled group about how they address these issues. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
