Cognitive Load Theory is a theory developed by John Sweller that states working memory has a limited capacity and that overloading it reduces the effectiveness of teaching. This session will discuss the basics of cognitive load theory and how to adjust your teaching to reduce cognitive overload of your students, increase retention, learning and progress.
