Science Behind Workshops

LARC workshops, coaching, and tutorials provide interactive experiences as well as strategies students can begin applying right away. Our goal is to connect students with proven strategies based on current research about learning, so they can comprehend and retain more information long-term, whether they’re collaborating with others or learning on their own. In addition to the practices below, we also promote self-reflection, wellness practices, growth mindset, and goal-setting as tools for self-efficacy.

Four Learning Practices LARC promotes:

  1. Spacing, or Distributed Practice
  2. Retrieval, or Self-testing
  3. Dual Coding
  4. Interleaving
