E-CORE/CIEL Communities of Practice (CoPs)
The E-CORE/CIEL Communities of Practice (CoPs) started in June 2020 as part of the project’s work to generate and coordinate supports as engineering educators shifted online. The aim of the CoPs is to provide an accessible space for instructors, staff, teaching assistants, and other engineering educators across Canada to connect and share ideas, discuss challenges, and celebrate successes.
The CoPs can be roughly divided into groups that focus on a certain community of educators (e.g. First-Year Instructors), and groups that focus on a certain topic within engineering education (e.g. Supporting Student Mental Health & Wellness). There is no limit to how many CoPs an individual can join, and each group provides unique opportunities for discussion and connecting with peers across the country.
|Community of Practice||Example Discussion Topics||Meeting Times|
|Supporting Student Mental Health & Wellness||TBD|
|Design Educators||Biweekly on Thursdays at 12PM EST|
|Non-Technical Course Instructors||TBD|
To sign up for any of the above Communities of Practice, free of cost, join our mailing lists using the CoP Signup Form. Once you have filled out that form, you will begin receiving emails and meeting invites for the CoP(s) you sign up for. We look forward to seeing you at the meetings!
Please note that the above Communities of Practice are currently conducted in English. Our CIEL working group currently provides a regular meeting space for individuals seeking to find and contribute to francophone supports and can be joined by contacting [email protected].
