Accountability / Responsibilities / Requirements / Roles

Creation Requirements
To make our "Community of Practice" PL time valuable and successful, we need between 150 and 200 talented and dedicated RVS members to take on the responsibility to "Create" a community. After a community is up and running , the creator acts as the key contact for the community and all other responsibilities are shared equally by the membership. (creators are not expected to be PD providers but are expected to be passionate about the inquiry idea that they put forward during the creation process)
If you did not "create" a community, as a member of the Rocky View Schools, you are required to register and actively participate in a community of practice. If you need to make a change to your registration prior to August 30th, 2015, please follow the procedure below.
Sharing and Contributing
Each Community of Practice is encouraged to "SHARE" their learning journey after each CofP day and then "CONTRIBUTE" community artifacts ( rubrics, lesson plans, action research finding, manuals etc) at the end of the 3rd day.
Optional - Reflections
A Community of Practice that decides not to use the new "SHARe and CONTRIBUTe" format must then use the standard "Reflect and Report" process from previous years. Reflections of learning will be required after each PL-CofP day using the milestones attachment and comment area with the RVSPL system.
