Communities of Practice

Reinert Center hosted Communities of Practice are small groups of instructors dedicated to intentional, sustained study of pedagogy in a particular area of interest either as a stand-alone group or as a continuation of a Reinert Center institute or workshop.


These are open to full- and part-time faculty.


  • At least five (5) with a maximum of ten (10) instructors (a given topic may have more than one community of practice if the number of interested participants warrants it)
  • New members may join at the beginning of a semester (fall or spring)
  • Continuing members have up to four semesters, or as is appropriate for a particular topic/group


  • A minimum of two, one-hour meetings per semester
  • Prepare by reading and reflecting on material before meeting
  • Contribute ideas for readings or other materials to discuss

Meeting dates and times will be determined once the group is formed.
