University

When studying for exams that encompass information learned over a significant period of time, you need introspective knowledge of your own memory capabilities to allocate an appropriate study time. There are topics or disciplines that you learn faster and those that come to you with a great effort. Why is that so? During the lecture, Dr Monika Undorf from the University of Mannheim in Germany will share results of her research related to memory and factors that impact the learning process.

The lecture, organized by Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Cognitive Studies is a part of the series "Fridays with Cognitive Psychology".

The lecture will be delivered in English. Free admission.
Please note, this time the lecture will take place on Monday.

On the importance of idiosyncratic information in metamemory

Accurate monitoring of one’s own learning and memory is essential for effective self-regulated learning and good learning outcomes. Consequently, the many demonstrations that people mispredict the effects of various factors on memory have alarmed researchers and educators alike. The current presentation reports a series of experiments that analyzed the accuracy of metamemory judgments across a range of materials and judgments. Results revealed that people achieve considerable monitoring accuracy by basing their metamemory judgments on the personal significance of study materials. This demonstrates that previous research has overlooked a major contributor to metamemory judgments and severely underestimated the accuracy of metamemory judgments. Recommendations for improving metamemory monitoring will be offered.

Speaker

Dr. Monika Undorf – is a cognitive psychologist specializing in metacognition. She is Margarete von Wrangell Fellow at the Department of Psychology of the University of Mannheim in Germany. Her research interests include metacognitive illusions, metamemory judgments and decisions as well as their educational relevance.

We are excited to host Dr. Monika Undorf form the University of Manheim at SWPS University and learn how one can improve insights into one’s own memory. This can help us to understand how memory works and what we can do to use it more effectively.
