Abstract/Description: Interference is a major cause of forgetting. Educational contexts in particular are rife with sources of interference. Avoiding interference in educational contexts is therefore a goal of researchers. Recent research has demonstrated that being reminded can transform proactive interference into proactive facilitation (Wahlheim & Jacoby, 2013). In the current experiments, I aim to extend said research to educationally relevant materials and explore strategies to increase being reminded in order to mitigate interference.
