    Abstract

    Interleaving is a technique which involves modifying the order of practice tasks or examples such that items of different types appear together, rather than in 'blocks' of similar items. For example, interleaved examples of artworks might feature the work of several different artists mixed together, in contrast to a 'block' of several paintings by the same artist. The latter example formed the basis of a research study by Kornell and Bjork (2008) which suggested that not only is interleaving highly beneficial for learning, learners tend to lack insight into its benefits and are therefore unlikely to adopt the technique spontaneously.
