Communities of Practice are groups of faculty who share an interest in exploring a common topic related to teaching and learning. There is no prerequisite or expertise required to join or start a community - only a desire to learn and share experience with faculty colleagues. Meetings are informal, and are scheduled by the community's coordinator.
Some examples of community topics and activities include, but are not limited to:
Sharing and researching best practices in teaching online
Exploring uses of a specific technology, or set of technologies, across disciplines
Discussing classroom civility, diversity, or other topics related to teaching and learning in all class environments
Funding is available through the Title 3 grant for communities on topics related to high impact practices in online and adult learner education. Contact Martin Springborg with questions, or to form a Community of Practice.
