REMEMBER, REMEMBER - HOW TO BUILD AND USE A MEMORY PALACE

How to Develop an Outstanding Memory
About this course

Memory palaces have been used since antiquity as powerful tools for storing information in long-term memory. All memory champions use them in order to perform staggering feats, but the good news is that anyone can learn to use the techniques that they employ. With the recent change of emphasis away from coursework towards more traditional exams, students are under increased pressure to develop memory skills.

This course can be delivered as standard INSET and as a class or larger group workshop involving students.

Course Outcomes:
  • Learn how to build a memory palace
  • Explore narrative techniques that help students to create concepts from facts
