You, Me, and A Cop: How To Locate Or Create A Community of Practice To Boost Your Teaching Effectiveness
Do you want to improve your mentoring relationships? Do you need additional resources to enhance your teaching pedagogy? A Community of Practice (COP) may be just what you need to boost your teaching effectiveness. A COP has the unique ability to increase the reach and impact of educators through mentoring, resource sharing, and connecting through shared experiences. During this session, we will guide participants through our experience of developing a COP, joining a COP, and strategies for starting a relevant COP in their network or at their college or university. We will discuss the Hub of MOBTS, as well as share examples of the new knowledge and insights derived from our own COP, highlighting the benefits of a COP and how we have used it to improve our teaching, research, and service.
