    ELC 057: How To Plan And Design Microlearning

    Microlearning is a thing and it's coming to a workplace near you. Of all the trends and terms of the last few years, perhaps none have been as poorly defined as microlearning.

    * How they define microlearning (spoiler alert: it's not about time)

    ELC 055: What You Need to Know About Cognitive Load

    ELC 055: What You Need to Know About Cognitive Load

    If you are a learning professional or if you think of yourself as a product designer, one of the most important aspects of your work is understanding how people learn. Yet, many of us in the field lack a basic understanding of the key theories that explain human cognitive architecture and how to best leverage it for learning. It’s up to us to learn about it, spread the word and advocate for learners. That’s why I couldn’t be more excited to present a conversation I had with John Sweller, PhD, the person who developed cognitive load theory.



    John Sweller is an Emeritus Professor in the school of Education at the University of South Wales Sydney. He is an educational psychologist, best known for formulating cognitive load theory, which uses our knowledge of evolutionary psychology and human cognitive architecture as a basis for instructional design. Cognitive load theory is one of the most highly cited educational psychology theories.



    WE DISCUSS:



    * Characteristics of working memory and long-term memory

    * Importance of tying novel information to previously learned information

    * What causes cognitive load

    * Cognitive load considerations in user interface and visual design

    * Examples of taxing cognitive resources in instruction: redundancy effect, split attention effect, transient information effect

    * Intrinsic and extrinsic cognitive load

    * Isolating elements as an instructional strategy

    * Why guided instruction is superior for novices learning difficult material

    ELC 054: Do learners understand your instructional graphics?

    Are we all a little over-confident about the graphics we use to promote learning? Today’s guest, Elizabeth Boling, has done research that demonstrates we are. We assume that people can understand our intent in the instructional graphics that we or others produce.

Her resume includes 10 years of design practice, five of which were at Apple. She was editor-in chief at Tech Trends and is founding editor and current editor-in-chief of International Journal of Designs for Learning,

    * Visual literacy

    * How text augments visuals

    * Why schools should be teaching students how to create graphics
