> Engaging faculty in the use of instructional technologies is an
> ongoing challenge. Academic technologists should not only expend
> energies to identify appropriate technologies and appropriate uses of
> technology to enable pedagogical styles and goals, but also to
> investigate the ways in which faculty learn about, adopt, adapt, and
> internalize new learning and teaching methods. In departments,
> disciplines or communities where a few faculty members actively use
> technology, the energy and success of these faculty make thinking
> about and using technology less intimidating to their colleagues.
> Identification and support of such faculty learning communities or
> "communities of practice" is therefore an important step in reaching
> resistant faculty with new ideas and approaches. Creating these
> opportunities to share ideas and experiences is an integral step in
> fostering an environment that encourages peer-mentoring amongst
> faculty. Join us to discover how your colleagues are building and
> supporting these communities of practice.
