On April 1st, the Chair hosted its first “Excellence in Large Class Teaching” community of practice meeting!
What is the Excellence in Large Class Teaching Community of Practice?
A Community of Practice is “a group of people who share a concern or passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly” (Wegner-Trayner, 2011).
The Excellence in Large Class Teaching Community of Practice is a group that meets at regular intervals to:
- Discuss best practices in large class teaching
- Share tips and tricks with one another
- Discuss emerging challenges, such as how to incorporate social media into the large class
What did the first meeting focus on?
In the first meeting of the Community of Practice, we introduced the concept of the group. Then, we discussed:
- What topics should the community of practice discuss?
- How often should the community of practice meet?
- What large-class teaching resources would you find valuable?
