We are cognitive psychological scientists interested in research on education. Our main research focus is on the science of learning. (Hence, “The Learning Scientists”!)
Our Vision is to make scientific research on learning more accessible to students, teachers, and other educators.
We aim to :
Motivate students to study
Increase the use of effective study and teaching strategies that are backed by research
Decrease negative views of testing
