Seven Rs – How To Teach
So That Learners Remember
An Effective Way To Teach For Maximum Retrieval
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to an effective 7Rs pedagogical framework for teaching for learner long-term memory. The framework uses brain-based strategies of learning that help learners remember what they learnt so as to allow for maximum retrieval later. Participants will have opportunities to experience these 7Rs and apply them to their own area of teaching. The 7Rs are Reach, Reflect, Recode, Reinforce, Rehearse, Review and Retrieve.
