Contextualize to Learn: Preparing Faculty Toward Math Contextualization for Student Success in Advanced Technological Education

C2L Conceptual FrameworkContextualize to Learn is a 3-year mixed methods research project led by Dr. Xueli Wang at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and funded by the National Science Foundation. The project explores how 2-year college faculty engage with professional development around math contextualization and the effect of contextualization on student outcomes, learning experiences, and motivational beliefs in math and overall educational and career success. The project’s guiding frameworks include community of practice (Wenger, 2011) and momentum for 2-year college student success (Wang, 2017).
