Educators around the world spent the past year having to adapt quickly to teaching in new environments and continue to face numerous challenges. This can easily result in cognitive overload. In this webinar, Professor Bill Schiano will talk about the importance of focusing on what really matters to help manage the load so that both educators and students get the most from their classes.

Topics we’ll explore:

  • Best practices for increasing efficiency
  • Using your limited time effectively
  • Applying lessons from psychology research
  • Helping students get the most from online class time
  • Harnessing technology to reduce rather than increase complexity
