You Read It; Don't Forget It: Designing Activities That Help Students Learn

Author(s): Larkin Hood

Year: 2018

Summary

Ideally, exercises and activities for an open textbook should encourage students to engage with and apply the information beyond a single course. This session provides a reflection on the process of designing resources that activate student motivation to engage with content, and provide checks on student understanding (for students and instructors). Activities are also a means for students to practice retrieving what they have learned so they can use it in other situations, and provide ways for students to use study approaches that work for learning archaeology, which can be different from approaches they have learned for other subjects.
