Simple way to remember ... pedals tighten in the same way the cranks rotate to apply power, and obviously loosen in the opposite direction

Yup, to tighten just set the wrench/key as an extension of the crank arm and push as if you wanted to pedal the bike.

While we are passing on advice ... I find there is no need to torque the pedal with much force when installing it. I snug it just a bit and have never had one come loose.

Once you are confident of direction, if they are sticking (as the often are) a tap of the wrench end with a rubber mallet can break them free without endangering knuckles.
(Don't ask how I know this.)
Then, for the future, what dj97223 said is correct: they don't really need to be super tight; just snug until "solid".
