The Intercampus Community of Practice (ICoP) grant targets support for the uses of newer technologies, especially as these technologies have the potential to increase the quality of interpersonal communications and understandings between, but not limited to, faculty-to-student, and/or student-to-student interactions.  

This initiative was conceived as a pilot program running for one year and is funded by the Learning Technology Development Council (LTDC) of University of Wisconsin Systems. The grant activities bring together faculty members and campus LTDC personnel from six UW campuses – Eau Claire, Green Bay, LaCrosse, Stevens Point, Superior, and Whitewater. Activities focus on understanding and learning more about the intersections between the learning differences and needs of Millennial students, Backward Course Design, and new forms of communication technology like blogs, wikis, D2L, podcasting, and virtual office hours. Twenty –seven faculty members have devised proposals whereby they will develop, or revise courses to add newer forms of communication through technology.
