Expanding a SoTL Community of Practice via Librarian and Faculty Development Collaboration to Create a Dynamic SoTL Database
Session Time and Location
Advance HE Pre-function Area
This poster shares a novel implementation of communities of practice (CoP) theory in the form of a dynamic database created via a collaboration between faculty developers and librarians. The database functions much like other library databases, allowing users to search for SoTL work by their colleagues. In addition, the database provides open access to the materials when available. The goal of this database is to facilitate visibility of and access to SoTL work on campus. It is our hope that through this database we can create new connections across campus, expanding the SoTL CoP, and facilitating new collaborations.
