The SFU Community of Practice for Educators (SCoPE) has received a B.C. Innovation award for leadership from the province’s Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) and BCcampus.

The ETUG Innovation Awards honour individuals from public post–secondary B.C. institutions who test, implement and use educational technologies to enhance teaching and learning, and/or who provide greater service and support to students, faculty, staff or administrators.

The SCoPE project was recognized for leadership in community-building, knowledge and resource sharing, and fostering "thought leadership" among B.C. post–secondary educators.

SFU’s Learning and Instructional Development Centre (LIDC) sponsored SCoPE’s launch in 2005 and hosts the group online as a way to bring together people who share an interest in educational research and practice.

"The idea is to offer opportunities for dialogue across disciplines, geographical borders, professions, levels of expertise and educational sectors," says LIDC director David Kaufman.

With that broad mandate, along with flexible tools, SCoPE’s members have shaped the online community into a vibrant meeting place for dialogue, collaboration and sharing.
