Dynamic Learning: Sleep and Memory

Dynamic Learning is the series title for a new set films we’re currently developing and rolling-out related to the psychology of learning.

The films are designed to give students practical, science-based, advice about a wide range of study techniques – from how to take better notes to, as with the second film in series, how to understand and take advantage of the importance of sleep and it’s relationship to memory, learning and recall.

Rather than mirror the didactic approaches of many past and present study skills films, Dynamic Learning is designed to be:

  • informative – suggesting, for example, key study opportunities students might want to try that are backed by scientific research – and

  • supportive: the focus is on how and why students might like to try different study techniques.

In terms of the relationship between sleep and memory, for example, recent scientific research has shown us the benefits of sleep.

And we’re increasingly aware that good sleep is crucial to memory and learning.

Of course, just getting lots of sleep isn’t going to get you good grades. You need to understand how to use a knowledge of sleep to your advantage and this short film reveals some of the simple sleep hacks students can use to improve their academic performance.
