Learning: Actively Recalling Information from Memory Beats Elaborate Study Methods

ScienceDaily (Jan. 21, 2011) — Put down those science books and work at recalling information from memory. That's the shorthand take away message of new research from Purdue University that says practicing memory retrieval boosts science learning far better than elaborate study methods. "Our view is that learning is not about studying or getting knowledge 'in memory,'" said Purdue psychology professor Jeffrey Karpicke, the lead investigator for the study that appears January 20 in the journal Science. "Learning is about retrieving.

Give Participants Time to Talk

It is a common error, and one that I made early in my career. Because bringing participants together is so costly to the company, and because it happens so infrequently, there is a natural tendency to cram as much information as possible into the available time.

Right-Handed and Left-Handed People Do Not See the Same Bright Side of Things

ScienceDaily (Feb. 2, 2010) — Despite the common association of "right" with life, correctness, positiveness and good things, and "left" with death, clumsiness, negativity and bad things, recent research shows that most left-handed people hold the opposite association. Thus, left-handers become an interesting case in which conceptual associations as a result of a sensory-motor experience, and conceptual associations that rely on linguistic and cultural norms, are contradictory.

Meeting architecture - a new force in meetings studies

As a tourism academic with a social science background, I have had an interest in meetings and conferences for some time now, but I have always felt I was pressured into rather economic, market research-type studies. I always felt my social science interests could give the research area an exciting added dimension, but I was not sure how to go about it.

I guess Maarten Vanneste was way ahead of me, and when I read his book, the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. Meeting content has to be a key research area co-existing with the more organisational and market research studies in the future if the field is ever to be taken seriously. The wealth of research areas and topics this offers is impressive, and to me, as a researcher, very exciting.
