25th September 2021

Speaker: Dr. Afrah Ali is an assistant professor with expertise in medical education and simulation at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. 

Topic: Cognitive load theory in Debriefing 
Debriefing is a complex skill that requires deliberate practice. The cognitive load theory when applied to debriefing helps to mitigate the various loads on the working memory. It helps enhance the debriefing experience for the learners and promote faculty development.
