Cognitive Load and Library Instructional Design
Learn how to help your students learn more efficiently by reducing the cognitive load -- the amount of mental effort -- taken up by extraneous information and poor design. In this webinar, an experienced library instructor will demonstrate easy, non-technical best practices in instructional design that will help your information literacy teaching in any medium.
- Define extraneous and intrinsic cognitive load, and how they each affect information literacy learning; and
- Use simple best practices
of instructional design to create better learning experiences and reduce
extraneous cognitive load on students
Who Should Attend: Academic instruction librarians will find it most useful, but any teaching librarians will be able to use the content and ideas.
