Communities of Practice Open to All Employees

Indigenization Group Holding Two Meetings in Coming Weeks


A community of practice is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or interest in a topic and who come together to fulfil both individual and group goals.

At Selkirk College, the Teaching & Learning Institute works with a couple of communities of practice: Contemplative Practices in Education and Indigenization. Both groups are active and are associated with email lists, have meetings and have group projects.  

For example, the Contemplative Practices in Education project is participating in a research project and planning a retreat for early summer. The Indigenization group is participating in a webinar and meets monthly in the Gathering Place on the Castlegar Campus.

The Indigenization group is meeting on March 18 at 12 p.m. and on April 15 at 12 p.m. Both meetings are at the Gathering Place. All staff is welcome in either group. If there is interest from Nelson employees in this group, they will look at having a spring meeting on one of the Nelson campuses.
