Community of Practice
We are bringing together Community College Business Faculty from across the SF Bay Region to share resources and best practices. We have currently support the following business sub-disciplines:
Accounting, Administrative (HR, Assistants, & BIW), Business Administration, Business Law, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Management (General, Retail, & Healthcare), Real Estate.
Our Community of Practice serves two purposes:
1) An opportunity for faculty to build relationships with each other.
2) A central location to organize and store content, curriculum, and best practices. For the latter purpose, we are using the Canvas LMS to store and organize this content. We refer to this as our virtual Community of Practice (vCoP).
We are partnering with ACUE (Association of College and University Educators) to offer a course in Effective Online Teaching Practices for Business Faculty across the region. This course has been shown to have a dramatic impact on closing equity gaps and increasing student learning outcomes. If you would like to learn more about this program, please watch the webinar we held with ACUE about this Course over the summer.
In the coming weeks, we will select and invite Business faculty to participate in this credentialed course in September. We are actively looking to fill the remaining seats for this Program. Please apply today!
