What is Cognitive Load Theory, and how does cognitive science and research inform our teaching practices? Dylan Wiliam, one of the leading thinkers in formative assessment and a proponent of helping teachers with useable and effective teaching methods, was recently quoted as saying “I've come to the conclusion that Sweller’s Cognitive Load Theory is the single most important thing for teachers to know.” During this workshop we will look at the roles that memory systems play in learning, the research behind Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) and practical teaching methods based on CLT that teachers can use in the classroom to help maximize learning.
