The Learning Activities in this collaborative are patterned on the best practices in online collaborative learning. The collaborative includes some pre-work, twice monthly Cohort-wide online sessions and periodic individual online sessions with our experts. The curriculum is designed for communities at varying levels of readiness to advance their community’s current efforts, learn from and share promising practices with each other. In addition, communities have access to an online information sharing platform.
These sessions are led by COE 2026 faculty and invited presenters. Online sessions often include an assignment that assists the community to build their Profile, and develop their Leadership and Strategic Plan. In general, sessions are designed to enable engaging, productive conversation that allows communities to ask questions, discuss challenges and share best practices. For many sessions we will invite one of our collaborative communities to present their work relevant to the topic of that session. We use Zoom Video Communications for our online sessions.
