CT Community of Practice

This Community of Practice is for all those involved in preparations to launch CT courses, particularly department CT leads. The aim of the CoP is to create a supportive, collaborative and exemplar network, where peers can come together to hear the experience others. We’ll also share top tips, approaches, lessons learnt and briefings that will provide support and confidence with CT course preparations and implementation.

How to join

The CoP meets every one to two months. Upcoming sessions will be listed here when scheduled. 

Please let Ben Miller (bbam20@bath.ac.uk) know if you would like the CoP to focus on a particular element of CT. We are keen the CoP is valuable to everyone involved.
