The E-Learning Community of Practice (CoP) was created in 2019 by Chantale Giguère with the hopes of sharing best practices of on-line teaching and learning with Dawson Faculty. Since this time, the community has grown to include faculty and professionals that engage in critical discourse, reflection and practical application of online teaching strategies. Community members collaborate with one another to help create meaningful and enriched blended courses based on best practices outlined in the literature.
Vision, Mission & Goal
Vision of the E-Learning Community of Practice
Our vision is to promote innovation and excellence in blended learning education through evidence-based practice and scholarly research.
Mission of the E-Learning Community of Practice
The E-Learning Community of Practice aims to gather curious faculty, professionals and educators from across the College to build a community of inquiry where knowledge is exchanged, assimilated and synthesized, and that functions to support the development of leaders in blended learning education.
The goal of the community of practice is to develop an evolving community of inquiry that is active in improving the knowledge and understanding in blended learning education so that meaningful and enriched courses are developed based on best practices outlined in the literature. With this improved pedagogical knowledge, practitioners of blended learning education will be better poised to nurture students who are critical and reflective life-long learners.
