About the CoP

The YOUmedia Learning Labs Network Community of Practice is a free and open community of educators and mentors who share knowledge, questions, and collaborate with colleagues across the YOUmedia Learning Labs network.

The ASTC-hosted Community of Practice is a place to ask questions through the discussion forum, share ideas using the resource bank, and work collaboratively to to improve our own practice. As an open community, we welcomes those who are interested in working and learning alongside us.

Where to start on the Community of Practice

Discussion Forum:

This is a place to connect with other educators and mentors interested in Connected Learning, youth development, and YOUmedia Learning Labs. You can share about an awesome program you are running, ask for support about an issue you are facing, or share a great resource you found. Did you just join the CoP? Introduce yourself today!

A great way to catch up on the conversations happening in the discussions is to check out our Monthly Roundups.
