What is a Community of Practice?
Communities of practice are groups whose members "share a passion for something they know how to do and who interact regularly to learn how to do it better" (Wenger, 2006). A CTLT community of practice allows people to share knowledge, expertise, scholarship, ideas, and suggestions, both face-to-face and electronically.
Have you ever wished you could connect with others on campus who are doing work similar to yours? Do you have a great idea or approach that you'd love to pass on to those who work in your field? Communities of practice are a great way to share with and learn from others on the UBC campus and beyond. You will share ideas and suggestions, both face-to-face and electronically, about teaching and learning topics most relevant to you.
Who can join?
Anyone with an interest in teaching and learning! We welcome undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and all others with a teaching or learning role or interest.
