Answer preview

The theory recommends breaking down complex classroom instructional information, designing clear instructions, as well as offering scaffolding to mitigate extraneous load and improve learning (Paas & van Merriënboer, 2020).

Besides the lessons I integrated into my teaching philosophy, this course also taught me the value of experiential learning. The practice focuses on providing hands-on experiences, real-world application, and reflection during classroom instruction (Cohen & Henry, 2019). As such, I can integrate this into my teaching to improve student’s learning outcomes and success in their future personal and professional lives (Cohen & Henry, 2019).
