Many students want to become more effective learners, yet they lack the effective learning skills they need to grasp key concepts and understand how these concepts apply in daily life. However, they can develop these skills if they’re willing to put in the effort, and if they’re fortunate enough to have someone guide them in the process.

In the webinar “The Four E’s of Effective Learning: Teaching Tips for Helping Students Become More Effective Learners,” author Dr. Jeffrey S. Nevid describes four key skills that comprise the Four E’s of effective learning: engaging interest; encoding important information; elaborating meaning; and evaluating progress. He provides examples of classroom-based instructional techniques and textbook pedagogical tools, as well as effective study tips students can use when preparing for exams. The presentation is informed by evidence-based pedagogy based on research Dr. Nevid has conducted on concept signaling, mastery quizzing, journaling, and the retrieval effect, as well as research on processes of learning and memory.
