Registration is closed

Brain science has infused adult learning, training, and development with a set of tools that enable learning practitioners to create learning experiences in bold new ways. One of those tools is Cognitive Load (CL). Through deconstructing principles of CL and applying them to sample and current learning projects, participants will enhance learning experiences by creating ways to anchor them in the brain.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Define Cognitive Load Explain how Cognitive Load works in the learning brain
  • Identify ways to add "anchor points" to a learning experience
  • Apply principles of Cognitive Load to a short learning experience
