Assessment, Teaching and Learning
An excellent, interesting site out of McGill University on Memory and the Brain.
Pick your level of explanation: beginner, intermediate, advanced or your level of organization: molecular, cellular, brain/neurological, psychological...Select short term (little brain #1) or long term memory (#2.)
Short Term Memory (STM) Demonstrations or Tests
Lecture outline/notes for the lecture on memory can be found at (Lecture #7 - pdf). Listen to this lecture (streaming audio or MP3 audio) - listening while looking at the notes is probably best.
Lecture notes that would be used in an educational psychology course, this is much more applied to learning (and teaching) and discusses chunking, etc. that could lead us to a discussion and sharing of ideas, teaching practices, and the like.
