Cognitive strategies aim to deepen the understanding of the content within the domain studied, as well as improve retrieval and transfer of knowledge.

John Hattie Share this expert JH John Hattie and Gregory Donoghue Share this expert GD Gregory Donoghue proposed a model that suggests different learning strategies should be used during different stages of the lifestyle. The following is based loosely on that model:

  • Acquisition ( surface learning ): The processing that occurs when first encountering new knowledge e.g. reading, listening, imitation, highlighting, underlining, etc.
  • Deeper understanding: The learner aims to make connections between new and prior knowledge to achieve deeper engagement. Strategies such as elaboration , organization , visualization and generation can be used.
  • Consolidating: Integrating information into long term memory so that it can be more easily retrieved. Strategies might include practice testing , spaced practice , interleaving , rehearsal, seeking feedback from a teacher or coach.
  • Application: Understanding patterns, similarities, and differences to transfer the knowledge to a new task in a different context.

The best results will be achieved not through the use of a single strategy, but a combination of strategies.
