Teacher Incentive Fund Online Community of Practice
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Westat created a Community of Practice (CoP) website that connects the Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grantee community. Here, grantees share information, tools, and resources in support of their performance-based compensation goals. This collaboration website, developed in Drupal, has more than 120 members who can share resources, network with other grantees, join discussions, respond, and mentor fellow grantees. The platform enables discussion and users can see at a glance where the new activity is occurring. Community members get regular email updates of new activity, new members, and important dates.
