Performance Aids are user-centered multimedia tools for organizing processes and condensing critical information. Karen Caldwell, Ph.D. explains them in detail and provides several examples of the various forms that performance aids can take, and how they contribute to deeper learning and higher performance efficiency: https://itchybrain.ca/learn/performance-aids/.

Learning to use the CER Framework (claim, evidence, reasoning) has strengthened my communication skills through the practice of avoiding unsupported, inarticulate claims. Also by Dr. Caldwell, this resource provides a wealth of examples of the power of CER to bolster the quality and credibility of your writing: https://itchybrain.ca/cer-framework/.
