    "Thinking Together" - A Virtual Community of Practice Approach to a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Leadership Program
    (2020) Mitchell, Jennie; Pantazi, Lamprini; Hiltz, Dan; Hubbard, Eric; Phelps, Emily
    In the first Saint Mary of the Woods College Community of Practice (CoP), five facilitators worked together to build the elements for a dynamic Community of Practice. Originally this CoP was scheduled as a hybrid-emersion model (with a weekend of bonding activities, 8 weeks of online, and an ending weekend of presentations and celebrations). Because of COVID-19, the team of facilitators built a comparable level of emersion experience, virtually. Every detail was considered from ice-breakers (wheel decide) to lively and creative orientations, to guest speakers who used a poling system (Mentimeter) to bring a word cloud to life, to a speaker who challenged the GCWL leaders to take a journey of self-discovery. The certificate program ended with a culminating project – a virtual poster show complete with audio, video, and Zoom breakout rooms to answer questions about their journey. In the final webinars, it was clear that this CoP was “thinking together,” a process where a CoP will mutually guide each other in a collaborative learning process.
