UCLA is home to a growing number of groups devoted to exploring different aspects of teaching. These learning communities, or communities of practice, are forums for discussing common interests, learning from colleagues, and sparking initiatives. They are a vibrant part of our campus’s teaching and learning ecosystem.  

If you organize any campus learning communities or communities of practice and would like to be included on this page, please contact us.
