Communities of Practice

Join an Online Community

The national office team has been building webpages and online communities for each Community of Practice (CoP) to create an online space for you to collaborate. Quick Links have been added to help members navigate between the various webpages. The team will continue to evaluate CoP’s progress during their start-up year to determine the best tech solutions and platforms.

Each CoP now has its own online community with:
  • Discussion Board (message board): an Internet site where people can post and read messages, usually on a specific topic or area of interest.
  • Blog: an online journal typically run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style usually containing online personal reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks, videos, and photographs provided by the writer. For longer form entries than a discussion board.
  • Wiki: a website that allows collaborative editing of its content and structure by its users. An example is Wikipedia; all members having editing privileges.
  • Resource Library: an online library for communities to upload and maintain their shared files.
  • Roster: a list of community participants which can be exported.
You can join or leave a CoP by following or unfollowing it on the ACPE website. CoP membership will be determined by participation in the online communities.
