Embedding Regular Testing into the Curriculum: Challenges & Solutions

Over a century of research investigating memory processes has robustly demonstrated that regular testing is beneficial for learning and long-term retention when compared to other learning strategies. However, there is a lack of awareness and understanding of testing and how/why it might benefit learning. Educators may also have concerns about how to successfully embed testing within a course. This workshop will provide an introduction to regular testing, how and why it benefits learning, how educators may embed regular quizzing in their curriculum, and solutions to potential issues they may face in doing so.
