Core webinar: Cognitive Load and Library Instructional Design

Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2022

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

Description: 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.

Learning outcomes:

At the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

1. Define extraneous and intrinsic cognitive load, and how they each affect
information literacy learning; and

2. 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.


Jason Puckett is Online Learning Librarian and Associate Professor at
