This community of practice (CoP) is designed to sustain the intellectual, social, and professional development of Carroll community members engaged in scholarly and/or creative practices. The CoP creates a safe space for 3-5 colleagues to cooperatively set goals, hold each other accountable, identify and reduce barriers, and celebrate successes as they work on projects that advance their careers. The ideal CoP will be interdisciplinary, inclusive, and responsive to its members.
Who is invited to join?
Any member of the Carroll employee community who has been at Carroll three years or less, and is working on a project for publication, presentation, performance, etc, including new curriculum development.
What does this CoP ask of you?
Groups are intended to be autonomous, so are responsible for establishing a meeting schedule and managing logistics (ie, notes, agendas, etc.). Group members commit to attending meetings regularly; supporting each other as fully as possible; and maintaining a focus on progress over perfection. The Teaching Commons will provide a set of guidelines you can use and adapt to your group’s needs, and can support you with your initial needs for facilitation, tech set-up, etc.
Our first New/er Scholars Research Group has reached capacity. If you're interested in starting a second one, please email us.
