Panelists will share various Community of Practice (CoP) models they have developed to support CEPs to reflect on their professional practice in particular core competency (micro-credential) areas. After an overview of the theories supporting the effectiveness of CoPs as a cohort-based professional development models, presenters will briefly describe the program models they developed and share stories about the benefits to participating CEPs as well as joys and challenges of facilitating these experiences. Attendees will be led through a facilitated discussion on the similarities and differences of these models while being encouraged to generate ideas for how they could adapt such programs for use within and across their own institutional contexts.
