When we are at a distance, it is even more important to connect with others to share and grow. Sign up to be part of a small collaboration group for the upcoming year. We call these collaboration groups, Communities of Practice. The goal of these groups is to bring together between 5-8 faculty from across MUSC to discuss teaching practices.
