Making Learning Stick - Sharona Kanofsky, PA-C, CCPA
November 13, 2022 from 8:00am EDT to 8:50am EDT
You spend hours reading and re-reading textbooks or articles, listening to lectures, or highlighting notes. Yet an hour later – or a week later – you ask yourself: What did I learn? And you realize you don’t remember much at all. Whether you are a PA learner, or a practicing PA trying to keep up with the most recent literature and practice guidelines, you know that learning does not occur by osmosis. In fact, the most common study methods – the ones you may be using yourself –are often the least productive. In this session, you will learn evidence-based strategies from the field of learning sciences to make the most of the time you spend studying. Using these strategies, you will be able to get the most out of your learning efforts and make your learning stick.
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the basic pathway of memory formation and learning retention
- Appreciate the productive struggle required for effective learning
- Apply six evidence-based strategies for successful learning
