In contrast, research on priming using verbal materials shows that performance on a test improves...

    This article explores the opportunities to apply cognitive load theory and four-component instructional design to self-directed learning.

    In this paper, two methodological perspectives are used to elaborate on the value of cognitive load theory (CLT) as a scientific theory. According to the more traditional critical rationalism of Karl Popper, CLT cannot be considered a scientific theory because some of its fundamental assumptions...
