One of the great things about the Keystone project at Quest is the ability to be so flexible with what you want to do. After writing a long paper on memory research and various memory models I could have been content, but I wanted to do more. To that end, this month I have been teaching a class on the topics I covered in my paper. Every Monday night Quest students who signed up for my class gather to learn about a different model. Tomorrow night is the conclusion of my class and we are going to cover my favorite subject: memory improvement techniques. It’s a commonly held belief that memory is fairly static, however, this is not the case. With specific strategies and practice, anyone can dramatically improve their memory.
One thing I love about teaching is how challenging/rewarding it is. There hasn’t been a single class where I haven’t been nervous before, and not a single class where I’m not completely excited after. Furthermore, I’ve learned so much myself teaching the class, both in preparation and from the unique perspective my students offer.
