Despite multiple studies showing the benefits, many people don’t know this learning trick.
Mixing up your learning can lead to massive gains, a new study of academic performance reveals.
For years now ‘interleaving’ has been a secret largely confined to researchers.
Interleaving means practising or learning different skills in quick succession.
When interleaving, tennis players might practice forehands, backhands and volleys altogether.
Interleaving for musicians could mean practising scales, arpeggios and chords all in the same session.
It’s quite a different method to how people normally learn.
Tennis players typically focus on forehands for a session and musicians on scales for a session.
