Proposal Title

Communities of Practice Pooling Educational Resources to Support Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (Copper)

Proposal Abstract

COPPER: Communities of Practice: Pooling Educational Resources to support the scholarship of teaching and learning The CASTL Institutional Leadership group COPPER has focused on ways to foster connections and to build communities of practice at and across different types of institutions. The session will highlight the COPPER Wire Strategy in which a topic is presented in a newsletter, blog and then teleconference or virtual reality to demonstrate the value of different pathways for engaging faculty across institutions. We will share examples involving developmental math, critical thinking and teaching in virtual realities and demonstrate how this approach has provided value to our institutions. The COPPER group is embarking on a series of Collegial Conversation forums in spring 2009 to explore what supports effective learning experiences for both students and faculty on each of our campuses. The session will provide an overview of the project and observations from initial sessions.
