Aaron Dewald, Associate Director for the Center for Innovation in Legal Education, has been selected to present at the 2016 South by Southwest Education (SXSWedu) conference held in March 7th – 10th in Austin, TX. Aaron’s topic, Media Design for Learners using Multimedia Theory, examines the learning science literature to talk about ways in which educational media can best be created using learning science theory in a way that engages the cognitive processes of learners. Aaron’s presentation was selected as one of the few out of over 1,300 ideas proposed for the SXSWedu conference.
