Communities of Practice for Educators
Get all the details on our newest community groups for educators looking to connect with peers who teach similar subjects or age groups.

As Outschool educators, you strive to build meaningful connections with your learners through your passions, and those connections are the cornerstone of Outschool’s EPIC framework.

Outschool is launching new Outschool Communities of Practice (COP) groups through Facebook to better facilitate meaningful connections within the educator community. These groups will serve as a place to connect with other Outschool educators on topics such as content areas or learner age groups.

These Communities of Practice will be a place of active, focused networking. Here, educators can share their personal experiences, brainstorm ideas, ask questions, and exchange feedback among their Outschool peers. Educators are encouraged to participate in relevant discussions topics in the spirit of positive professional growth through weekly moderated posts. COP discussion topics include professional development opportunities, online teaching tips, and motivational support.

Hoping for some colleague face-time? Regular, live monthly meetups will be held to give educators a chance to chat on topics that matter to the group in real-time. Examples of meetup topics include marketing, lesson planning, or product strategy. Plus, each group will hold monthly social meetups to give participants the opportunity to share their personalities and get to know one another through energizing challenges.

Any active Outschool teacher is welcome to join one or more Communities of Practice. So what are you waiting for? Find a group that speaks to your interests and expertise below, or visit the Community page for a list of all active community groups.

One last thing – If you don’t see a content group that matches your teaching area, stay tuned and check back here in the coming months! We’ll be adding more content groups soon.
