Intelligent Practice

Not only has my delivery of worked examples changed dramatically, but so too has my choice of the practice questions I give my students. Indeed, harnessing the power of intelligently varied sequences of examples and questions is my latest obsession. Here we dive into why I believe the simple process of: Reflect, Expect, Check is one of the keys to learning.
