Book Review - Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning with Dr. Bryan Tanner Learning Experience Leader

    • Design

Today I’m joined with Bryan Tanner, a recent PhD graduate from BYU’s Instructional Psychology and Technology department. He has a professional background in K-12, higher ed, and corporate instruction. Bryan is an avid reader of biographies and business nonfiction and our discussion today is all about this book. 
From the book description: "To most of us, learning something "the hard way" implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners."
In summarizing and reflecting on the book we cover topics such as: 
Learning myths and tactics to overcome them8 principles from the book that will change how you approach learningAnd a bunch of examples from the book and our own lives of these principles in practiceResources
