Learning and memory
Following her popular presentation at the Learning Technologies Summer Forum in June, Dr Julia Shaw returns to explore the science of memory and learning further. What is it that L&D professionals must know about how our minds works to ensure memories – and learning – stick? What practices should we avoid and how can we help people help themselves to learn better?
