The College of Education will offer a free webinar for educators entitled "A Framework for Teaching in Content Areas." This webinar will address how students learn best when they are engaged in their own learning. Students are fully engaged in learning when they are interested and are able to sustain attention to tasks for a period of time to find the learning process rewarding. For long-term learning to occur, students must turn the action of engagement and attention into a process of cognitive processing where new information is knowingly integrated into previous knowledge and experiences, and differences in understanding and knowledge are actively mediated. Effective instructional practice not only acknowledges this, but also purposefully works to facilitate these conditions and cognitive processes. To register, visit www.uni.edu/coe/webinars
