In this session we will review evidence-informed techniques for effective revision. We will begin with an overview of the memory system and the importance of rehearsal; organisation and eliminating distractions to successful revision. We will then move to consider effective memory improvement strategies. One of the biggest myths about the human memory is that its ability is pretty much fixed- some people have good memories and some people have bad memories. By engaging imagination and training yourself to actively make links between the knowledge you need to know and pre-existing knowledge you have such as the route from home to school; you give yourself a much better chance of remembering said information. Effective memory improvement strategies helps students have more fun in revising whilst building their confidence which in turn leads to better outcomes. The aim of the session is to leave teaching practitioners with a range of practical strategies and techniques that they can employ in order to maximise the potential of their students and improve academic outcomes.
