Abstract

Following the application of the remember/know paradigm to student learning by Conway et al. (1997), the present study examined changes in learning and memory awareness of university students in a lecture course and a research methods course. The proposed shift from a dominance of 'remember' awareness in early learning to a dominance of 'know' awareness as learning progresses and schematisation occurs, was evident for the methods course but not for the lecture course. The patterns of remember and know awareness and proposed associated levels of schematisation were supported by a separate measure of the quality of student learning using the SOLO (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes) Taxonomy. As found by previous research, the remember-to-know shift and schematisation of knowledge is dependent upon type of course and level of achievement. Findings are discussed in terms of the utility of the methodology used, the theoretical implications and the applications to educational practice..
