The researchers said their results suggest that “the benefits of the learning-by-teaching strategy are attributable to retrieval practice; that is, the robust learning-by-teaching strategy works but only when the teaching involves retrieving the taught materials. In order to insure that students and tutors learn and retain the educational material that they have prepared and presented in class, they ought to internalize the to-be-presented material prior to communicating it to an audience, rather than rely on study notes during the presentation process”, the researchers said.

We’ve all heard someone say that ‘teaching is the best way to learn’. Now research has shown that while teaching does aid with learning, it works best without study-aids as the beneficial effects are likely attributable to the action of retrieving learning from memory.
