The latest from CESE
New Cognitive load theory classroom practice guide
CESE recently published a Cognitive load theory classroom practice guide. The publication accompanies our popular paper, 'Cognitive load theory: Research that teachers really need to understand'.

The classroom practice guide:
  • explores seven teaching strategies for optimising students’ cognitive load 
  • provides practical examples from the NSW syllabuses
  • asks teachers to reflect on their own practice.
To download the practice guide, visit the CESE website.
Since its release, over 1,600 people have downloaded the guide.
We've had feedback from across the world...


NSW public school educators who are interested to learn more about the evidence behind cognitive load theory can enrol in our short cognitive load professional learning course. For details, visit CESE’s professional learning library, or enrol directly on MyPL.
Every student is known, valued and cared for in our schools
Last week, we published 5 case studies that highlight effective wellbeing practice, and how it supports learning, in local contexts. These case studies were prepared to assist schools to meet the department's strategic goal of 'Every student is known, valued and cared for in our schools'.
We also published an environmental scan document that describes the structures and approaches that support student wellbeing and improve pastoral care. It includes an assessment of:
  • current departmental practices
  • departmental data, trends and information
  • relevant state, national and international research
  • current practices in a number of NSW public, independent and Catholic schools.
To download the case studies and the environmental scan, visit the CESE website.
CESE would like to thank the school leaders, teachers and students at the following case study schools:
Additional resources for NSW public school educators:
The 'Every student is known, valued and cared for in our schools' digital toolkit hosts school stories and resources that have been designed to support schools in promoting a culture of innovation and ownership of student wellbeing.

department intranet.
