Desirable difficulties: Slowing down learning

About This Video

Fast learning doesn't lead to long-term retention of information. In this interview, Dr. Bjork explains that it is beneficial to create study conditions in which learning is slowed down to allow for better memory for the information in the long-term. This creates an unfortunate conflict between the desire to see quick improvements on the side of the learner and the instructional goals of the instructor.
