When new information is presented to learners, it must be processed in a severely limited working memory. Learning reduces working memory limitations by enabling the use of schemas, stored in long-term memory, to process information more efficiently. Several instructional techniques have been designed to facilitate schema construction and automation by reducing working memory load. Recently, however, strong evidence has emerged that the effectiveness of these techniques depends very much on… 
Expertise reversal for different forms of instructional designs in dynamic visual representations
TLDR
This paper reviews a series of recent experimental studies that have found interactions between levels of learners' organized knowledge structures and effectiveness of different instructional designs (exogenous support), leading to the expertise reversal effect.
Expertise Reversal Effect and Its Implications for Learner-Tailored Instruction
The interactions between levels of learner prior knowledge and effectiveness of different instructional techniques and procedures have been intensively investigated within a cognitive load framework
One More Expertise Reversal Effect in an Instructional Design to Foster Coherence Formation
TLDR
The present study focuses on the effectiveness of verbally presented semantic support for coherence formation and found that high-knowledge learners were slightly hindered, accompanied by a comparable medium level of cognitive load.
Rapid dynamic assessment of expertise to improve the efficiency of adaptive e-learning
In this article we suggest a method of evaluating learner experties based on assessment of the content of working memory and the extent to which cognitive load has been reduced by knowledge retrieved
Measuring Knowledge to Optimize Cognitive Load Factors During Instruction.
The expertise reversal effect occurs when a learning procedure that is effective for novices becomes ineffective for more knowledgeable learners. The authors consider how to match instructional
Using Cognitive Load Theory to Tailor Instruction to Levels of Accounting Students' Expertise
TLDR
This research provided strong evidence in support of adaptive instruction with the learner-adapted instruction group significantly outperforming the randomly assigned instruction group and substantially enabled by spreadsheet technology-based learning environments.
Reanalyzing the expertise reversal effect
Finding the best match between learners' expertise and instruction is a central issue in educational psychology. The idea that different learners might need different instruction gave rise to the
The expertise reversal effect concerning instructional explanations
TLDR
The expertise reversal effect occurs when learner’s expertise moderates design principles derived from cognitive load theory and is replicated for the dependent measure transfer, but not for retention.
Expertise reversal effect and its instructional implications: introduction to the special issue
The formulation of robust and empirically-funded instructional principles is one of the major goals of instructional science. Research on aptitude-treatment interactions (ATIs) have, however, shown

Levels of Expertise and Instructional Design
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the appropriate type of structure may depend on the learner's level of expertise, and the best instructional designs changed from ones in which diagrams and text were physically integrated to ones inWhich the text was eliminated.
Measuring Knowledge to Optimize Cognitive Load Factors During Instruction.
The expertise reversal effect occurs when a learning procedure that is effective for novices becomes ineffective for more knowledgeable learners. The authors consider how to match instructional
Assimilating complex information
Cognitive Load Theory and the Format of Instruction
Cognitive load theory suggests that effective instructional material facilitates learning by directing cognitive resources toward activities that are relevant to learning rather than toward
Cognitive Architecture and Instructional Design
Cognitive load theory has been designed to provide guidelines intended to assist in the presentation of information in a manner that encourages learner activities that optimize intellectual
Cognitive Load While Learning to Use a Computer Program
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that many traditional instructional techniques may unnecessarily overload limited working memory and impede learning. Based on cognitive load theory, it
A comparison of cognitive load associated with discovery learning and worked examples
This article reports experimental work comparing exploration and worked-examples practice in learning to use a database program. Exploration practice is based on discovery learning principles,
Cognitive Load and Learner Expertise: Split-Attention and Redundancy Effects in Reading with Explanatory Notes
TLDR
It is argued that the efficiency of instruction depends on the extent to which it imposes an extraneous cognitive load, which may facilitate performance or interfere with performance either through split-attention or redundancy effects, depending on learners' expertise.
THE SPLIT‐ATTENTION EFFECT AS A FACTOR IN THE DESIGN OF INSTRUCTION
SUMMARY. Cognitive load theory suggests that many conventional inStructional formats are ineffective as they involve extraneous cognitive activities, which interfere with learning. The split­
