Students are expected to learn a great deal of information, and as they progress from grade school to college, they are increasingly responsible for guiding their learning outside of class. Thus, students could benefit from easy-to-use strategies that support durable and efficient learning. I'll discuss which strategies students believe are the best and which ones they use the most, and I'll describe a variety of promising strategies that they should use. Although these principles from cognitive science are not a panacea for every learning challenge, they provide robust tools that will improve student success across many domains.

Dr. John Dunlosky is a Professor of Psychology at Kent State University, where he has taught since 2004. He has contributed empirical and theoretical work on memory and metacognition, including theories of self-regulated learning and metacomprehension. Since his post-doctoral training at Georgia Institute of Technology, he has explored people's metacognitive capabilities and how to improve them. A major aim of his research program is to develop techniques to improve the effectiveness of people's self-regulated learning across the lifespan. A fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, he is a founder of the International Association for Metacognition. He co-authored Metacognition, which is the first textbook on the topic, and has edited several books on metacognition and education. He also serves as an Associate Editor for the Psychonomic Bulletin & Review.
