Description: 
There are many learning strategies that have been shown to improve long-term learning of facts or skills. In this chapter Dr. Bjork talks about the effect that introducing desirable difficulties has on long-term learning outcomes. While some of these seem to slow down learning and performance doesn't improve as rapidly as possible, the research has clearly shown that these approaches are beneficial if the goal is to remember these facts or skills for life.
