In October 2019, Campus Compact will welcome community engagement professionals and a team of distinguished facilitators to co-create two Communities of Practice (CoPs) for the Community Engagement Fundamentals and Community Partnerships Micro-Credentials. Each CoP will consist of approximately 12-15 participants.
A Community of Practice (CoP) is a learning community, or collegial network, that we define as “a group of people who share interest in an area of inquiry and engage in collective learning about that issue as it relates to their work or practice. Through discussions, joint activities, and relationship building, the community of practice develops a shared and individual repertoire of resources, skills, and knowledge to use in their practice.” (MN Campus Compact).
Participation in one of the currently-offered CoPs can play an important role to help you prepare to earn micro-credentials by: 1. Providing you with the space to share, reflect on, and build your knowledge around key competencies you are expected to demonstrate to earn certification, and 2. Providing a valued “cohort” experience for collegial support as you reflect on your professional practice and prepare to submit required materials as part of the micro-credential application process.*
Visit credential.compact.org to find out about the micro-credentials you can earn, begin your application, learn more about submission requirements, and find resources and tools to help you start earning micro-credentials.
The CoP embraces and embodies the following equity-based principles that: (a) everyone has knowledge to share, (b) everyone has learning to do, and (c) participants bring many identities and ways of knowing and that such diverse expressions should be encouraged and incorporated into CoP activities.
The CoP will meet six times between October 2019 – April 2020 for 90 minutes via scheduled virtual meetings (using the Zoom platform). Additional readings and or/resources may be recommended. Selected participants are required to participate in all CoP meetings.
