A Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who share an area of inquiry and engage in collective learning about that issue as it relates to their work or practice. Through discussions, joint activities, and relationship building, the community of practice develops a shared and individual repertoire of resources, skills, and knowledge to use in their practice. Communities of practice exist everywhere; from formalized meetings to informal lunch discussions among peers, they create connections between people, facilitate sharing knowledge, and lead to shared practices.
The University of Minnesota Office for Public Engagement and Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin Campus Compacts will co-sponsor a set of issue-focused Communities of Practice (CoPs) in 2018-19. These CoPs are open to faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community partners affiliated with the University of Minnesota and Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin Campus Compact member campuses.
The CoP participant application will open in spring, once CoP topics and co-chairs have been selected. If you’re interested in participating in the future, or with questions, contact Sinda at MNCC or contact Amber at OPE.
