Introduction to Education: Myths and Mysteries of Memory


In this course, we will learn about the science of memory and how it relates to education, broadly construed, by taking a tour through the many ways in which memory influences everyday life. We will cover topics like how to learn effectively, individual differences in memory ability, the effect of trauma on memory, why people are susceptible to misinformation, and how collective memories shape the way we remember history. In the process of learning about these topics and others, we will critically evaluate widely believed myths about memory, try to explain mysteries of memory, and explore the implications for education in formal and informal contexts. By gaining a better understanding of memory and how it works, you will acquire skills and knowledge that you can apply to your education and life more generally.
