T&D: Talking Multimedia Learning with Dr. Richard Mayer

From Tim Green in 2014

In this episode, I interview Dr. Richard Mayer. He is a Professor of Psychology at the University of California Santa Barbara. Dr. Mayer has written over 500 publications including 30 books that include Computer Games for Learning, Applying the Science of Learning, e-Learning and the Science of Instruction: Third Edition (with R. Clark), Multimedia Learning: Second Edition, Learning and Instruction: Second Edition, Handbook of Research on Learning and Instruction (co-editor with P. Alexander) and the Cambridge Handbook of Multimedia Learning: Second Edition (editor).

The focus of the interview is on multimedia instruction. Dr. Mayer describes what multimedia instruction is and why it should be part of teaching and learning. He provides a concise overview of his cognitive theory of multimedia learning. He discusses his current research interests as well as where he sees research on multimedia instruction heading.

The interview ends with advice he has for those developing multimedia instruction.
