Designing Multimedia Instruction to Maximize Learning - Dr. Richard E. Mayer Lecture

Multimedia supplements our instruction in many teaching contexts, whether we use PowerPoint during a face-to-face lecture, a computer-animated game to help students understand an abstract concept, short video lectures in an online course, or graphics in a textbook. In this talk, Dr. Richard Mayer will provide a concise overview of his cognitive theory of multimedia learning, and share evidence-based principles to design learning materials that are in alignment with how students learn and process information.
