Why shouldn't I miss this!

Scaffolding is a key strategy in cognitive apprenticeship, in which students can learn by taking increasing responsibility and ownership for their role in complex problem solving with the structure and guidance of more knowledgeable mentors or teachers. 

Thus, scaffolding entails a delicate negotiation between providing support and continuing to engage learners actively in the learning process. Don't miss this webinar!
