Research on Teaching and Learning Community of Practice


The Research on Teaching and Learning Community of Practice (RTL CoP) is an opportunity for those interested in research on teaching and learning (RTL) to meet regularly with like-minded colleagues from across campus to share their ideas, discuss RTL topics of interest, and learn from each other. The membership defines the purpose of the CoP and, since its inception, members have presented their RTL projects, discussed RTL articles, considered different research approaches, and helped to troubleshoot bottlenecks in one another’s projects.

What to expect

Although the activities can vary meeting to meeting, you can expect to meet with a group of colleagues from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who are interested in discussing various aspects of RTL.
