Connect with a Community of Practice

Digital Learning & Innovation is committed to building learning communities and creating gathering places for Boston University leadership, faculty, and staff technology users to share ideas, meet and connect with colleagues, and discuss platforms designed to improve students’ learning experiences. All of our communities of practice meet via Zoom or in person and are supported by Digital Learning & Innovation, Educational Technology, and Center for Teaching & Learning staff.

Share Your Teaching & Learning Experienes

Through the peer-to-peer teaching and learning model, communities of practice enable Boston University faculty and academic staff to leverage available and emerging learning-centered technologies. Connect with a learning community.

Being a part of the Teaching with Technology Community helped me to connect with others to brainstorm, talk about our shared aspirations and concerns, and walk away with not only more ideas, but new knowledge, tools, or skill sets.

Attending the EdTech Collective sessions has been a game changer...I am forever grateful for the amazing experience to always learn, connect, develop, and be on the leading front to have technology and new tools incorporated into my classroom for my students.
Suzanne Bagnera, Clinical Assistant Professor, BU School of Hospitality
Teaching can be a strangely isolating experience, so faculty-to-faculty collaboration and learning helps us to reconnect. This reconnection is essential not only for sharing practices that have worked well, but for creating a cohesive and unified curriculum.
Christopher McVey, Senior Lecturer, BU College of Arts & Sciences Writing Program
The Teaching with Technology Community coordinators are very supportive and arrange topics and technology tutorials based on the needs and interests of members.

The Adobe Catalyst Program is a unique opportunity to teach and learn peer-to-peer. So much of traditional mentoring usually involves a superior and a subordinate, and is often unidirectional, so it is really nice to have everyone at the same level.
Gregory Stoller, Senior Lecturer, Strategy & Innovation, BU Questrom School of Business
The biggest benefit of faculty-to-faculty learning is the spirit of camaraderie that comes from learning together with colleagues.
