Entrepreneurship Community of Practice
Problem-solving through entrepreneurship
Through this Community of Practice, we explore, share, and implement methods to enable institutions to have the tools and know-how to create and sustain a range of institutional and infrastructural systems that nurture creative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit in students to solve problems.
What are CoPs?
Our Communities of Practice (CoP) are groups of educators, industry professionals and individuals developing best practices, innovations, and improving outcomes in ethics and leadership, entrepreneurship and employability across the network.
How do I join a CoP?
How many CoPs can I join?
While we encourage active engagement across the entire Education Collaborative community, we advise members to join no more than two Communities of Practice every calendar year.
What will I do in a CoP?
Participants commit to membership in a chosen Community of Practice with meeting times and goals agreed on by each community member. Members develop group projects, as well as a plan for assessing and executing projects to achieve targets set.
How much time will participation require?
Members determine meeting schedules and structure. Communities of Practice generally meet quarterly, depending on the scope of their work and availability.
What kind of funding is available for each of the groups?
Funding is accessible for projects emerging from Communities of Practice, subject to availability.
