Reinforcing Learning: How to Incorporate Starting Pauses
Workshop / Seminar
WSU Pullman - Animal Disease Biotech Facility (ADBF)

Pausing for 2-3 minutes during a lecture/clinical teaching can significantly increase short-term memory and embed knowledge into students’ long-term memory (Ruhl, et al., 1987; Prince, 2004). Join this session to see examples of how pausing at the start of teaching can provide an opportunity to focus attention, use predictions, and assess previous knowledge.
