Learning Tips and Retention: Discussions in Law School Success
This podcast discusses tips to help you remember more information and to perform better on law school exams. Three learning strategies are explained: spaced repetition, the testing effect, and cognitive schema. Briefly defined, spaced repetition incorporates periodic studying throughout the semester. The testing effect can be more challenging and is exactly what it sounds like; it is testing yourself to see whether or not you know the material. Lastly, the podcast explains how to create a cognitive schema as an organizational structure that you can use to retain information.
For more on this subject, look at the CALI Lesson "Secrets to Improved Memorization."
On completion of the podcast, the student will be able to:
1. Create a schedule to include spaced repetition in their study schedule.
2. Build flashcards for their courses.
3. Apply a cognitive schema to their study schedule.
