Teachers’ Lounge: Cognitive Overload for Instructors Teaching Online (For Graduate Students)

11/19/2020 @ 12:10 pm - 1:25 pm

Teachers’ Lounges are a series of informal discussions for graduate students about teaching practices and the culture of learning at Columbia. Since many classes have shifted online this semester, Teachers’ Lounges are linking theories and models of online instruction to insights derived from working in digital learning spaces with Columbia students.

In this session, we will consider the often competing demands on attention faced by instructors in the online environment and their impact on instructional efficacy and authority.

What are some common distractions and areas of overload that hamper desired instructional attention? What can instructors do to incorporate new technologies and pedagogical approaches, while at the same time minimizing the cognitive load associated with each? Join us to share tactics and gain inspiration. Register here.

This session is facilitated by Mark Phillipson and Caitlin DeClercq from the Center for Teaching and Learning.
