Part Two. Basic Learning Events Proven to Build Expertise

EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION requires that instructional modes, methods, and architectures align with human psychological events of learning, including managing load in working memory, supporting attention, activating prior knowledge, helping learners build new mental models, and supporting retrieval to ensure learning transfer.

Part II is the heart of this book, with eight chapters that focus on the core events of learning and instructional strategies proven to promote these events. Chapters 5 and 11 focus on the psychological basis of these events. Chapters 6 through 10 and 12 describe the evidence and give examples of proven training methods you can use to promote these learning processes.
