Cognitive Load and the HyFlex Classroom

Code: EDEV0880

Course description

Most faculty will be new to serving three distinct audiences (in-person, remote and asynchronous). Promoting the social and emotional well-being of faculty and students as they adjust to this delivery mode will be crucial. The cognitive load in the initial phase can be reduced through the learning, reflection, and support needed for faculty to become confident, creative and critical (Coldwell-Neilson, 2020). This course will focus on how faculty can manage attention, energy, and technology as they deliver in this mode. It will also present practical ways to promote learning for all three audiences in a HyFlex class.
