This publication presents proceedings from the 1998 Contextual Teaching and Learning Design Conference, which focused on developing a framework to study contextual teaching and learning strategies in teacher education. The conference provided participants with an opportunity to think, talk, and work together on that task. Participants included experts from 30 universities, authors of commissioned papers, teachers from local schools, representatives from educational and professional organizations, community partners, and U.S. Department of Education representatives. This publication summarizes events from each of the two days, focusing on five questions that were addressed: What would a program preparing teachers to employ contextual teaching and learning strategies look like? How can preservice programs utilize interaction between campus and K-12 schools to promote contextualized teaching and learning? How can preservice programs utilize the community to promote contextual teaching and learning? How can preservice programs utilize the workplace to promote contextual teaching and learning? and How can the various dimensions already discussed be utilized to promote diversity? Two appendixes list participants and paper topics and articles. (SM)
