About Make It Stick

For many, the notion of learning "the hard way" often suggests wasted time and effort. We typically expect effective teaching to be adaptable to diverse learning styles and to employ methods that facilitate the learning process. However, Make It Stick challenges these popular notions. Drawing upon recent insights from cognitive psychology and related fields, the authors present practical techniques for enhancing our learning efficiency.

Memory plays a pivotal role in our ability to engage in intricate cognitive tasks, such as applying knowledge to novel problems and making inferences from existing facts. Recent discoveries about how memory is encoded, consolidated, and retrieved have deepened our comprehension of the learning process. Confronting the obstacles that render learning challenging ultimately leads to more profound mastery and improved retention of acquired knowledge.

Surprisingly, many conventional study habits and practice routines prove to be counterproductive. Actions like underlining, highlighting, repeated reading, cramming, and exclusive repetition of new skills may create the illusion of mastery, but the acquired knowledge tends to fade quickly. In contrast, more sophisticated and enduring learning results from practices such as self-testing, introducing controlled difficulties in practice, revisiting new material after some forgetting has occurred, and interleaving the practice of one skill or subject with another. Addressing students, educators, trainers, and athletes alike, Make It Stick will resonate with anyone interested in the ongoing challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.
