Strategies that Promote Deeper Learning During Lecture (Science of Learning Series)

Researchers distinguish between shallow and deep processing in learning (Chi & Wylie, 2014). Shallow processing involves trying to remember material through rote memorization, repetition, re-reading, and highlighting. These activities re-expose students to the material but often result in superficial learning (Chi, 2009). Deep(er) learning involves trying to make sense of the material by connecting new information to what you already know looking for patterns, themes, organizing principles exploring the implications or consequences of the subject matter ​Deep processing activities lead to better understanding and more durable learning (Chi & Wylie, 2014). For example, when students try to explain a new concept they discern new connections among ideas, and identify what they still do not understand very well.

​In this session you will identify deeper learning strategies that best fit your subject matter, and explore how to incorporate them into your lectures, discussions, and class activities.
