Feedback form is now closed.
Why and how do we pursue answers to puzzling pedagogical questions within a community of practice?

This session looks at three approaches to collaborative scholarly inquiry as alternatives to the research pursuits of the isolated individual faculty member. Within these approaches, commonalities include creating space for examining pedagogical questions together, with colleagues taking the role of critical friends, providing “alternative understanding and knowledge that will lead to deeper reflection on actions and inquiry into experience” (Pellerin, 2011).

Come learn about three approaches of collaborative scholarly inquiry and hear firsthand anecdotes of the challenges and opportunities of implementing these approaches from three different BC PSE institutions.
