Communities of Practice
Communities of Practice (CoPs) are groups of people who come together to share ideas and strategies, determine solutions, and build innovations around a common concern or interest.
The Center for Teaching and Learning supports a variety of CoPs each semester. Each one varies in its level of activity. If you have an idea for a new CoP, let us know about your interest!
Below, please find information about CoPs currently being offered by the CTL. When you register your interest in a CoP (see links below), we’ll be sure to communicate with you about activities associated with that CoP.
Service-Learning Community of Practice
If you are already involved in service-learning or would like to test the waters, we invite you to join other instructors for discussions on integrating service-learning into your courses. This group of faculty gleans ideas from each other, supports each other in taking new steps in service-learning, and steers each other towards helpful research, writing, and publishing avenues. You will hear examples of service-learning in different disciplines, common concerns about service-learning, and approaches to addressing those concerns. Within this CoP, you will experience a curious, open, supportive conversation. This CoP gathers on the first Wednesday of the month over the lunch hour (12:00-1:00pm) in ILC 315 (or zoom).
