How Learning Happens: Depth of Processing Information

By Nidhi Sachdeva

Last week I introduced a new video series called "How Learning Happens" based on a recent book from 2020 called How Learning Happens by Paul A. Kirscher and Carl Hendrick. This video series is intended to address the gap between theory and practice with respect to cognitive learning theories.

While the first video looked at cognitive load and problem solving, the second video in this series will focus on the depth of information processing.
