Please note: This blog post is a course related assessment for the Master of Arts in Learning and Technology program at Royal Roads University.
For assignment 2, I chose the topic of Communities of Practice in Higher Education. As an individual who works in a teaching and learning centre, Communities of Practice are often used to bring people together with a similar interest and with varying levels of knowledge and experience on the topic. With several new technologies being introduced in my workplace, I thought this topic would be appropriate to review the literature on Communities of Practice, to have academic research backing my suggestions of implementing Communities of Practice in the near future.
I look forward to reviewing any questions you may have, completing the second phase of this assignment and updating you shortly on if my suggested Community of Practice idea is implemented at Durham College.
