Cognitive Load Theory by Oliver Lovell


Below is a summary/set of notes on some of the more important areas from Oliver Lovell's excellent book on CLT. I am a History/Business teacher by trade so I approached it from that angle - but I believe all of my 'takeaways' (See the end) are easily applicable to all subjects.
