Contextualization of Knowledge

Considering the origins of how and what we teach

Contextualization of knowledge refers to the efforts to teach critical thinking skills in which students learn to reflect on the social, cultural, and disciplinary context in which knowledge is created. It involves the expansion of the curriculum to include the voices of scholars from non-western backgrounds, ethnic/gender/sexual minorities, and diverse case studies. Inclusive education is only possible when we include a diversity of thought in our curriculum and have the courage to question established forms of knowledge. Contextualizing knowledge also involves re-examining testing and evaluation with the consideration of equity.
