What is bandwidth? "Mental Bandwidth" generally refers to the amount of cognitive capacity (“brain resources”) within our control at a particular moment.

 

We need bandwidth for daily tasks and decisions, but also for processing novel and complex information (learning!). Given that our students come to us with varied levels of bandwidth available—often due to circumstances outside of their control—finding ways to help them invest their bandwidth wisely is one path to increasing success for all students.

 

As a Faculty Fellow, Dr. Bhargava is compiling a faculty toolkit for making changes to curriculum design and pedagogical practices that can help to purposefully align bandwidth demands with learning objectives. Please join Dr. Tina Bhargava for a working lunch to explore strategies for streamlining “mental bandwidth” demands in your teaching practices.
