Communities of Practice

What is a Community of Practice?

The Faculty Community of Practice (CoP) program adapts collaborative learning strategies to enhance faculty development and promote improved student learning. Community members meet on a regular basis to develop scholarly projects and best practices around an issue particular to first-year students and the Gateway to Graduation program. The community is an opportunity to establish and develop interdisciplinary faculty support networks and to serve as knowledge incubators for scholarly research.

Gateway currently has seven CoPs to become involved with, and they are listed on the left side of this page. Please complete an application form if you are interested in joining.
