Speaking & Professional Development

When I facilitate professional development, my research on learning and memory propels my approach to teaching and speaking. I practice what I preach when it comes to retrieval practice and getting information out using powerful evidence-based strategies.

Highlights from my professional development experience:

  • Presented invited keynotes and workshops for thousands of K-12 and higher education educators around the world

  • Workshops include modeling of research-based teaching strategies, interactive discussion with time to collaborate, and a personalized website for attendees
