Cognitive load

“Cognitive load” is the burden imposed on memory in the form of information that must be held plus information that must be processed.

Yes, that's right. It's about that time in the semester when I'm feeling the cognitive "over"load. My strategy for combating this? Lots of quiet time to independently work on items, task by task. Focusing on one task at a time. Extensive task lists with deadlines. Not removing items from these list until they are completely taken care of. Is it working? I will let you know come Decemeber 15th.
