Understanding the PICUP community of practice
written by Paul W. Irving and Marcos D. Caballero
The mission of the Partnership for Integration of Computation into Undergraduate Physics (PICUP) is to expand the role of computation in the undergraduate physics curriculum. A primary tool to facilitate this expansion is the PICUP Faculty Development Workshop (FDW), which functions similarly to the New Faculty Workshop (NFW), in that invitees engage and learn about educational practices associated with integrating, in this case, computation into their curriculum designs. With this focus on community building and engagement in the legitimate peripheral practices of the PICUP community, we have developed a project that applies the communities of practice framework to understand how the PICUP community develops over time. Presented in this paper are the initial stages of this work that focuses on understanding the central member's perceptions of the communities goals and ways to participate in the community.
