Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Jeff Zwiers

This type of communication focuses on long-term depth and construction of core concepts in a discipline. In this webinar, Jeff Zwiers describes how to improve all dimensions of learning (content, cognition, language, social, agency, etc.) by enhancing instruction with three main features of authentic communication.
