A Simple Example for Practice: FYE introduces students to campus resources to support the transition to college life and learning.
There are some facts, such as the campus resources available, what services the resources offer, and their location, but that is merely isolated information.
For future critical thinking and problem solving to occur, the learner needs to not only hold this information in mind, step back, and reflect as they learn about each campus resource, but they must also begin understanding what they are learning in the context of the conceptual framework of the course.
For example, the Writing Center, its location, and services need to be understood and organized around the conceptual framework of the FYE course if the learner wants to be able to think critically and be able to make decisions as they find the need to call upon campus resources.
