COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
Join facilitated discussions driven by YOU!
According to educational theorist Etienne Wenger, communities of practice (also known as “CoPs”) are “groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.” CoPs are not training; they are a different type of professional development where the content is driven by the participants.
MRTQ PDN offers free facilitated CoP groups around the state. Most CoPs meet monthly for approximately two hours. Regional and topical groups meet throughout Maine. You can join a CoP at any time!
There are a number of reasons to participate, including to:
Build relationships with peers
Share and exchange knowledge
Support each other to use evidence-based practices
Identify internal and external expertise
Problem solve issues from the field
Receive professional growth hours
Share it with your team!
