Fall 2018 Faculty Reading Group

The Center for Teaching Excellence invites you to join us this fall as we read Make it Stick by Peter Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel. New insights into how memory is encoded, consolidated, and later retrieved have led to a better understanding of how we learn. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors of Make It Stick offer concrete techniques to help students become more productive learners.

"This is a quite remarkable book. It describes important research findings with startling implications for how we can improve our own learning, teaching, and coaching. Even more, it shows us how more positive attitudes toward our own abilities―and the willingness to tackle the hard stuff―enables us to achieve our goals."

- Robert Bjork, University of California, Los Angeles
