Earlier this summer, I was asked to speak on the pilot BCC did in incorporating contextualized curriculum modules as part of the statewide MCCWDTA grant (See http://mccwdta.etlo.org/).

Our team had trained several faculty from developmental reading, writing, math, and ABE/GED programs to work with contextualizing their courses. This process is easier said than done. For one, the modules developed by the state are not designed to be plug-and-play, nor are they designed to be easily used. In helping overcome these dilemmas, I had developed a contextualized curriculum worksheet that incorporates Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction to help faculty-users digest the contextualized materials to use in their courses. So far, the process has been a success.

The video contains introductory remarks by the project director, Kristen McKenna and continues with my remarks on how I worked with faculty during our implemenation process.
