Register now for Friday's Teaching@Sydney event - Overcoming the Trump effect: What to do with misconceived but highly confident learners?


Confidence has been linked to better career outcomes, happiness and a greater likelihood of attracting a suitable partner. However, confidence has a dark side that is overconfidence. Overconfidence is particularly a problem in relation to commonly held misconceptions. Here one might expect that overconfidence always interferes with learning from our mistakes but this is not always the case. It seems that we are more likely to remember an error if we were initially confident we were correct, compared to errors resulting from a guess. This hypercorrection effect has been attributed to attentional enhancement as a result of a mismatch between confidence in a response and its actual correctness. In other words we learn when we are surprised.

In this seminar Dr Jason M Lodge, psychological scientist, Senior Lecturer in the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education and a Senior Research Fellow in Learning Sciences in the Australian Research Council funded Science of Learning Research Centre at the University of Melbourne, will present an overview of research on the hypercorrection effect and discuss how it might prove useful in a higher education context. Jason’s research focuses on the application of the learning sciences to higher education and the ways in which technology is influencing learning. Jason is also co-editor (with Jared Cooney Horvath and John Hattie) of From the Laboratory to the Classroom (Routledge, 2016) and Associate Editor of Australasian Journal of Educational Technology.
