CANdid Conversations – Using a Community of Practice to Share and Build Expertise
This session represents the best of any Community of Practice (COP) experience: effective communication, community collaboration, and best practices of and from the field. Experienced site leaders will learn what a COP is, why they are a great way to build shared learning in a community, and define how they want to integrate the strategies into their everyday practice. Every participant will receive a copy of the COP guidebook that includes resources, promising practices, and helpful tools in resolving common challenges.
Strand:  The Nuts and Bolts of Program and Professional Development
