Join your colleagues from across campus for a workshop on multimedia instruction featuring Dr. Richard E. Mayer, distinguished professor of psychology at University of California, Santa Barbara. Faculty, graduate students, and anyone interested in teaching are welcome!

Multimedia supplements instruction in many teaching contexts, whether using 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, 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.

During the past two decades, Mayer and his colleagues have conducted more than 100 experimental tests leading to 12 research-based principles for how to design online learning environments and computer-based games. He is author of more than 500 publications.
