Abstract

A community of practice (CoP) approach aims to create opportunities for the dissemination and development of best practice in teaching and learning and pedagogic inquiry by fostering multiple and overlapping communities of interested parties across the institution. This session focuses on the issues and challenges involved in developing communities of pedagogic practice (CoPP). The findings from a qualitative study of four leading practice institutions, with recently launched and/or established communities, are described. Findings from a staff preference survey and initial first year experiences of ?pump priming? a CoPP at one HEI in the UK are discussed.
