Community of Practice Development

Portfolio Community of PracticeA Community of Practice (CoP) empowers individuals and groups of people by providing these groups with opportunities to work collaboratively to develop the skills and resources they need to effect change in their own learning and teaching environments.

UBC’s central units (TAG, OLT, Library, Student Development, Human Resources) and faculty instructional support units work together to build and facilitate CoPs focused on learning and teaching with technologies. For example, OLT and TAG are currently collaborating on a campus-wide Portfolio Community of Practice, which facilitates information exchange about the use of paper and electronic portfolios. The Portfolio Community of Practice will develop guidelines to help the UBC community in the adoption and implementation of portfolios.

The important work of the CoPs is streamed through events and workshops that communicate lessons learned, best practices, resources and, in some cases, research results.

Check the TAG and e-Learning websites for more information.
