No Joke: Cognitive Overload Is Real in Online Courses

Spring 2022


More Details

Have you felt exhausted, overloaded, bombarded with new technologies and chaos in the last few months/years? Is there always something new, more than our brains can take in at one time? WE feel it and so do our students. This workshop will discuss course content workload and cognitive overload as it applies to meeting required hours for online courses, what those hours look like for you and your students, and why purpose in planning is so valuable to course outcomes and expectations.


Thanks to MTSU Online for co-sponsoring this workshop!

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
