The Four E's of Effective Learning: Teaching Tips for Helping Students Become More Effective Learner
Presenter: Jeffrey S. Nevid, St. John's University of New York
“Hey, Prof, I read the text but I just don’t get it.” Students who do poorly on exams may be motivated to succeed, but lack the effective learning skills they need to grasp key concepts in psychology and understand how these concepts apply in daily life. Effective learning takes work, but it also involves the development of four key skills that comprise the Four E’s of effective learning: (1) Engaging interest; (2) Encoding important information; (3) Elaborating meaning; and (4) Evaluating progress.
Join Dr. Nevid for a one-hour webinar focusing on how you can help students become more effective learners. Examples of classroom-based instructional techniques and textbook pedagogical tools will be discussed, as well as effective study tips students can use when preparing for exams. The presentation is informed by evidence-based pedagogy based on research Dr. Nevid has conducted on concept signaling, mastery quizzing, journaling, and the retrieval effect, as well as research on processes of learning and memory.
