Communities of Practice at CityU

CoP - Communities of Practice

In the 2012-15 triennium, the UGC introduced the new teaching and learning initiative,to establish ‘Communities of Practice’ (CoPs) that can enhance teaching and learning for our students. As the name implies, CoPs enable colleagues with similar teaching and learning interests to share ideas and practices. With the UGC funding, the following five CoPs as identified in our Academic Development Proposal (ADP) were set up at CityU in 2013:
