This is the last session for the community of practice this semester. Come hear from your peers about innovative ways to use technology in your teaching.
As a structural model, the Community of Practice (CoP) approach offers a framework for creating learning communities to engage in sustained conversations focused on enhancing their professional practice. In the higher education context, CoPs can “provide professional support for academics who are increasingly overwhelmed by continuous change, excessive workloads and research output demands” (McDonald & Star, 2006). The primary purpose of this CoP is to encourage engagement and access expertise within the Saint Mary’s University teaching community. Therefore, all sessions will foster collegial discussion and a sharing of ideas.
