    Abstract

    Interleving refers to the benefits of sequencing learning tasks so that similar items - two examples of the same concept, say - are interspersed with different types of itemss rather than being consecutive. This results in a more variable and challenging task but is associated with benerits in terms of memory and transfer, which to apply to conecpt learning as well as other domains. (Kang, 2016).
