Abstract

We are all busy and the world around us changes rapidly and constantly - faster than ever before. This increases the need for ongoing learning and development in a period when time is becoming ever more pressured. Engagement in professional development opportunities is a reflection of our personal and professional values, and understanding that to develop our ideas and practices we must learn from experience - our own experiences and importantly the experiences of others (Shulman, 2005). As such, we wanted to build upon online networks to form an open community of practice that facilitates authentic, bite-size and just in-time opportunities for those who teach or support learning in higher education. Through the use of weekly tweet chats, we aim to: develop a flexible learning community to engage in professional conversations around learning and teaching; facilitate the sharing of experiences and ideas; and encourage colleagues to support each other in a collaborative and collegiate manner.
