Using cognitive bias to help students learn to reduce study bias Overall Objective To understand how and why using examples increases the chances that students will learn and retain EBHC concepts (and minimize the chances they will fall asleep!). The secondary objective is to understand the 'availability heuristic' or 'availability bias'. Key Point: using (cognitive) bias to reduce (study) bias Humans are cognitively biased: if they can think of examples, they are likely to remember them (and assign irrationally high probabilities to the likelihood of events like those in their examples, which is called the 'availability bias'). This talk is free and there is no need to book.
