Retrieval practice is a powerful strategy that boosts learning by pulling information out of students’ heads (e.g., quizzes, clickers and flashcards), rather than cramming information into students heads (e.g., lectures). It's a no-stakes learning opportunity that is flexible and quick, with a huge impact on long-term student achievement.

Here are some of our weekly updates on retrieval practice to get you started. We hope you'll check out all of our teaching strategies and visit our library for free downloadable guides
