As part of the professional growth through work, I have been researching cognitive load theory as a result of student surveys. As in, based on the surveys I felt that I could improve my teaching practice through applying some of these methods. So, research I did and then based on the research developed some behaviors and routines to improve in classroom work. Below is the blog post I made to the school:
After reviewing cognitive load theory, reading a few articles, and a bit of thinking about my classroom practices, I’ve developed the following list of behaviors to work towards when conducting lessons. I am considering developing measurement tools for these routines. However, intuition says do not proscribe it too much. So, I am going to try it less formally and see how it goes.
