In episode 21 we catch up with Dr Phil Higham, who is a Reader in Cognitive Psychology within Psychology at the University of Southampton. His research focuses on long-term human memory and metacognition and identifies methods to ensure that student learning endures over time.
We discuss strategies for the role of feedback in learning- something which is very relevant to the move towards blended and online delivery. Whereas many students revise by studying and restudying course material, research shows that they would be better off being more active by generating answers to potential questions and then receiving corrective feedback.
