Cognitive Load: Maximizing student learning while minimizing cognitive load (October 31, 2017)

Session Description

Limitations on human memory and attention can influence students’ ability to learn in our courses, whether face to face, hybrid or online. You may have heard students say that there is ‘too much’ information, the course is ‘overwhelming’ or they ‘don’t know where to start’ on a task. In this workshop, we'll present some known human cognitive limitations and discuss concrete strategies for enhancing your class sessions and course materials without overloading students' cognitive abilities.
