Communities of Practice Symposium – TEST TEMPLATE

Communities of Practice (COPs) are groups of volunteer participants that have an on-going interaction around a shared concern.

Communities of Practice are a valuable source of professional development as they offer English Language Teaching (ELT) professionals a supportive environment to share knowledge and build better practices. They provide a rich resource of knowledge, experience and expertise in order to achieve common goals, solve common problems and learn from one another to advance and grow.

This meeting will bring together groups of communities of practice to discuss important and timely issues in the English Language Teaching community.
