Cognitive load theory audio paper

This audio paper was originally published 12 December 2017.

It was recently described by British educationalist Dylan Wiliam as "the single most important thing for teachers to know". Grounded in a robust evidence base, cognitive load theory provides support for explicit models of instruction.
