Event description

Description

Dr Ben Kehrwald (Scopus profile) is ‘academic developer’ at the Uni of South Australia ‘Teaching Innovation Unit’.

Session 1 at 1pm

Understanding and Identifying Cognitive Load in Networked Learning

This session considers cognitive load theory (CLT) in the context of networked learning (NL). It aligns with networked learning practitioners' efforts to understand and eliminate barriers to learning in networked learning situations. The ideas presented are based on the premise that by recognising and either minimising or eliminating instances of unnecessary cognitive load in networked learning situations educators can improve learners’ abilities to acquire and develop schema and, in doing so, educators can support learning in networked learning situations. The presentation brings together current thinking in cognitive load theory and descriptions of key aspects of networked learning to identify and describe of potential instances of cognitive load experienced by networked learners.

Session 2 at 2pm

This presentation describes the context of the establishment of UniSA Online, with a particular focus on UniSA Online: Quality Matters, the document which describe the quality assurance strategy, the framework for learning and teaching, principles which guide the design and development of UniSA online courses and the lessons learned operationalising the quality framework.
