Communities of Practice

Tamarack's Communities of Practices (CoPs) are small, interactive groups of practitioners who connect virtually monthly or bi-monthly to share experiences, tools, ideas and challenges in order to learn ways they can grow and expand their work. Joining a CoP can help you deepen your knowledge and professional connections around a focused aspect of your work. Through actively contributing to the agendas and meeting discussions, you'll be able to access a community of like-minded peers who can help you expand and develop your own thinking and practice as it relates to your work.

Testimonials


 

”I just want to tell you how much I loved the conference in Edmonton. The speakers and workshops were amazing. You did an excellent job of pulling this together. I can’t stop thinking about how I can apply what I learned in my work. Thanks so much for all that you and everyone involved did to help us all feel welcomed and part of a movement. I will recommend next year’s conference to others.”

- 2019 ABCD Edmonton participant

 

“One of the best workshops I've been to! Very well organized. I took notes and ideas about how to run a good workshop just as much as I took notes on the content.”

- 2019 Evaluation + Design participant

 

"My passion has always to spend time in Life-Long Learning and Tamarack continues to offer new ways of thinking and/or doing!!! Thanks for all you do!!”

- 2019 Community Engagement participant

 

“Thank you for organizing a festival (not a workshop or a conference) for focusing on creating a learning place, rather than teaching - this way is key. Thank you for weaving Toronto into the event - it was almost another presenter. I wanted to let you know that it was deeply meaningful, only on the professional, but on human, personal level. Thank you again.”

- 2018 Community Change Festival participant

 

”Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this VERY well organized event! I met many people and left energized. We will continue to prioritize attending these events.”

- 2018 Poverty Reduction Summit Participant
