With the aid of learning strategies, it is possible to guide memory and learning processes for specific goals. This e-training course introduces participants to a series of learning strategies based on research in the psychology of learning. These strategies are geared to widely varied learning goals—ranging from classic rote learning, to the consolidation and structuring of knowledge, to the more efficient use of informative texts and one's own notes. Participants will learn how to apply these strategies for self-directed learning opportunities in everyday work, and what makes them so effective.
