There is a range of contextualization, perhaps from one small stakes assignment to a fully integrated LC, and other models like a project across multiple classes. This workshop will include whole-group interactive work related to contextualization in general and small group work to begin the process of contextualizing part or all your course for a FOI.
Ultimately, to best contextualize your course, you will work directly with FOI program faculty to design curriculum that allows for meaningful, relevant assignments/projects that will transfer knowledge/skills to classes in programs/FOI and that meets program learning outcomes. In fact, it would be ideal for you to attend this work session with a discipline faculty member you might work with in the future.
