Time & Date: 3:05 P.M. – 4:00 P.M., Thursday, June 18, 2009

Location: Rm. 261, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC)

Session Description: UBC’s Portfolio Community of Practice has been a source of innovation and creativity on campus. As we transition into a new phase of Portfolio use on campus some of the questions we hope to discuss more deeply are: How do we encourage leadership within a community of practice? How do we embrace diversity within a community and engage people at different levels of expertise? How can we encourage interaction and learning around portfolios in an online environment? Is it necessary to have online interaction, or is an online presence enough?

Participants will hear about the history of the UBC Portfolio Community of Practice and the impact it has had on developing projects and supporting research at UBC. Come share your experiences and learn more about initiating or developing your own community of practice – how to make it an active and creative space for portfolio innovation and implementation.
