Day 1 – Cognitive Load theory with Michael Meguerdichia
One of the highlights of attending conferences like the Australasian Simulation Congress is the opportunity to meet and learn from members of the international simulation community. Michael Meguerdichia (@mmegue01) is an emergency physician and is Medical Director at The Simulation Center Harlem in New York, part of the NY Health and Hospital Simulation Centers. He ran a workshop at the conference based on his recent BMJ STEL paper on cognitive load theory and the way we can improve knowledge transfer in simulation. There was standing room only at the workshop, and in the interview we talked about how this theory informs design and delivery of scenarios.
