Katie Farnsworth, Geoscience Department, recently co-facilitated a workshop at the Earth Educators Rendezvous in Nashville, TN.
The Rendezvous brings together a variety of faculty from across the country to focus on improving geoscience education at all levels. The workshop was co-faciliated with Margie Turrin of Columbia University and was entitled "Broaden and Diversify Your Reach Through Expanding Your Definition of Community of Practice.″
The workshop focused on creating a community of practice (COP) to help move forward on a project or goal. There was particular emphasis on evaluating a COP you may already be a part of and how to bring more voices into the conversation for the benefit of all.
