WHSA Communities of Practice (CoPs) are groups comprised of individuals with similar roles with the goal of solving common problems and developing best practices. Participating individuals engage in joint activities and discussions, help each other, and contribute information. They share concern and passion for what they do and, over the course of four meetings a season, pool their experiences to build a repertoire of resources, experiences, stories and tools. Each CoP will meet a minimum of four times, with the possibility of additional sessions if the group so chooses.
Event Description: The Community of Practice December gathering will consist of two days over which all CoPs will hold their initial meeting of the 2020-21 training season. This event will include a Keynote with expertise and guidance about how to advance successful group learning initiatives.
Fees: Registration fees will be charged per Community membership. Both subscription (including 4+ meetings per year) and individual meeting rates will be available. The Keynote will be included for all those that register, regardless of level.
