High-Impact Teaching Strategies for Academic Excellence

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Laura Glisson, our Language and Literacy Specialist here at Teach Well, for gaining a position on the Publication Committee at Learning Difficulties Australia, an association dedicated to assisting students with learning difficulties through effective teaching practices. Nice work, Laura!

Three resources for our alumni

How to use retrieval practice for group work: the surprising truth


Can teamwork actually help students retain more information than independent work? What does the research say about the effect of group work in students’ learning? This article looks at the research behind group work and how teachers can use it to improve student learning.

Improving multiple choice questioning


How can we more efficiently and effectively use multiple choice questioning as a learning technique? In this article, you can read about how this form of questioning can help students be more metacognitive about their learning – could they accurately retrieve the correct answer or can they just recognise it from a list of options?

New AERO resources released


Have you seen the new Australian Education Research Organisation’s practice resources? New resources include research summaries, facilitated guides for different learning areas, videos and case studies. These could be perfect for collaborative discussions at school.
