Communities of Practice
The EAUC is committed to supporting our Members to exchange ideas, skills and experience. Our network now comprises over 3,000 colleagues in universities, colleges and learning and skills institutions. To encourage more specialist learning and information sharing, we seek out and launch a range of Communities of Practice to support focused and efficient networking.The success of these groups is crucial to the EAUC's delivery of its mission and vision so we have recently reviewed the role of these groups and the vital support we must offer them to allow them to function efficiently and to offer wider Membership value. We have outlined an EAUC groups strategy to clearly communicate this.
