Community of Practice

Join the CTO Community of Practice!

A community of practice (CoP) is a support network for people who share a common role, concern, set of problems, or interest in a topic. CoPs create opportunities for learning, building capability, sharing knowledge, and reducing duplication of work. Members of a CoPs learn how to do things better as they interact regularly.

The CTO CoP series is intended to create situated learning in small doses on a variety of topics that can supplement other training offerings or stand alone. These workshops are great opportunities for RIT staff to sharpen their skills or learn something new through hands-on demos and live Q&A.

Please use this Qualitrics Survey to submit questions in advance for the session you plan to attend. This will allow the CoP presenters for that session combine like questions and make the most effective use of time for workshop attendees.

Use this Zoom link to join any of the workshops at 9 AM on the 3rd Thursday of each month; registration is not required. Sessions will be recorded and made available below after the session. Interpreting Services will be provided.
