The Contextual Learning Portal provides a template to support teachers and program leaders in developing and sharing curriculum.
The portal has been used for curriculum projects from a variety of initiatives, including community service learning, academic support,
creativity-building, community learning center programs and more. Since Summer 2019, the portal
has been providing space for curriculum development and
sharing for teachers participating in teacher externships, focusing on development of curriculum inspired by these worksite experiences.
