Conversations with Colleagues: March
March 16 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMFree
Strategies for Developing Communities of Practice
This session is about developing an Equity and Inclusion Community of Practice. Ronald Ferguson, with colleagues at Ridgewater, have developed a faculty-driven community of practice to promote equity-related practices in and out of the classroom. The goal for the session is not only provide a primer on communities of practice, but also offer insights and strategies for maximizing both impact and engagement. We hope to have good, collegial conversations to help you consider the possibilities at your institution.
When colleagues readied themselves for emergency remote teaching this spring, we all received a powerful reminder in the value of social learning. Colleagues from across the system who had been separated from one another through physical distance came together online to share ideas and learn from one another. We would like to sustain this social learning through Conversations with Colleagues, a program for those who are interested in connecting with one another.
Meet new faculty, gather with long-time friends from across Minnesota State, and bring questions and ideas (along with your lunch) to these monthly gatherings that will include conversation starters and an opportunity for both large and small group conversations. Additionally, you’ll be able to add your name to a searchable list of faculty and staff who are willing to share their expertise and areas of interest with others.
