Relevant to your Work

Whether you are a new or experienced educator, in most classes you will have field experience opportunities that will enable you to learn and demonstrate skills on the job.

When tasks are authentic and situated in real-world contexts, students are more likely to be motivated. Motivation is important because it can lead to increased cognitive engagement and thereby enhance learning (Blumenfeld, Kempler, & Krajcik, 2006).

Participate in an energizing learning environment that engages you in beneficial learning tasks.
