Communities of Practice


Laurier communities of practice (CoP) provide a forum for educators from multiple disciplines and academic support units to come together and share best practices, lessons learned, instructional concerns, student experiences, and so on with the goal of deepening their knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning by interacting with others on an ongoing basis.

If there is a topic or area of focus you would like to explore with other faculty and instructional staff colleagues, and would be interested in initiating or being part of a community of practice at your campus, contact Educational Development ( / x3507) to explore options and supports available.

Teaching and Technology: Community of Practice

The Teaching and Technology: Community of Practice provides a forum for members of the Laurier community from across the disciplines and departments to come together to share experiences, best practices, and lessons learned associated with the use of technologies in teaching (from the simple to the complex, pen and paper to electronic).

CSL/CEL in the Classroom: Community of Practice

This Community of Practice will provide a forum for Laurier faculty from across the university to share their experiences around using Community Service-Learning (CSL) and Community Engaged Learning (CEL) to support the deepening of student engagement and the attainment of enriched learning outcomes. Furthermore it will be a forum for faculty new to CSL/CEL to learn from the experiences of their colleagues and increase their awareness of the how it can be used to connect theory with practice and develop learning outcomes embedded in real experiences within community organizations.
