Communities of Practice

PPLI ‘Communities of Practice’ (CoPs) are meetings of teachers who share a common interest in languages and language teaching who come together to share best practice, create new knowledge and exchange ideas. PPLI facilitates regional and thematic CoPs throughout Ireland.

The activities of each community of practice depends on the participants and are based on mutual respect and trust, which encourages a willingness to:

  • share ideas
  • expose one’s knowledge gaps
  • ask questions, and
  • listen to others.

Meetings take place throughout the year and respond to the trends of language teaching in Ireland. To join the CoP mailing list and stay informed on upcoming events click here.
