Our Community of Practice - TEL Is Already Working Well!

The Community of Practice has only been launched today and our college has already seen the benefits. One PGCE student requested staff (via our CoP located on our Moodle) to view a short video and answer a questionnaire. The topic of the research was Makaton and through this simple communication conduit we were able to bring together a fully qualified Makaton staff member and the PGCE student together. This would not had happened without the CoP. Makaton will now be highlighted at our college which will help support Equality and Diversity. AND THIS IS ONLY THE FIRST DAY OF THE LAUNCH OF THE COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE! :-)
