As most of you know, we recently released posters describing 6 learning strategies supported by cognitive psychology:

  • spaced practice
  • retrieval practice
  • elaboration
  • interleaving
  • concrete examples
  • dual coding
Now we are working on translating these posters into as many languages as possible. Currently, we have completed 6 translations:Now, we'd like to hear from you:


What language would YOU like these posters translated into?

We are currently seeking funding for this project, and will try to prioritize the languages for which there is the most demand.

Thank you for your input!

Assistant Professor, University of Massachusetts - Lowell

Yana Weinstein is an Assistant Professor at University of Massachusetts, Lowell. She received her PhD in Psychology from University College London and had 4 years of postdoctoral training at Washington University in St. Louis. The broad goal of her research is to help students make the most of their academic experience. Yana's research interests lie in improving the accuracy of memory performance and the judgments students make about their cognitive functions. Yana tries to pose questions that have direct applied relevance, such as: How can we help students choose optimal study strategies? Why are test scores sometimes so surprising to students? And how does retrieval practice help students learn?

Hi Yana (and Megan and Cindy). These are great! Have you considered Japanese and Chinese as potential languages for translation?

Hi Warren, yes - those are indeed the languages that most people have recommended we tackle next! Thanks!

Hi Yana – I'd second Warren's suggestion, given the interest in evidence-based learning in the Asia-Pacific region.
