Faculty Development

student on campus

WRITE Program Faculty Development will take many forms including traditional (and not-so-traditional) workshops and discussions. However, the WRITE Program also aims to promote a “community of practice” among the instructors, professors, tutors, and scholars supporting WRITE. Social learning theorist Etienne Wenger (http://www.ewenger.com/) defines the term as:

Communities of practice are formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain of human endeavor: a tribe learning to survive, a band of artists seeking new forms of expression, a group of engineers working on similar problems, a clique of pupils defining their identity in the school, a network of surgeons exploring novel techniques, a gathering of first-time managers helping each other cope.
