The award-winning Peer Group program for Virginia’s Community Colleges encourages collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, planning, forecasting, learning, and networking in the VCCS.
A peer group is a natural association of 12 or more faculty by discipline, position or special interest. Each peer group will have the opportunity to meet every other year to discuss substantive issues related to curriculum revision, integration of technology, instructional innovations, and discipline updates. Peer group meetings are organized by a planning committee comprised of individuals in the discipline or peer group. Peer group/discipline (PGD) meetings provide an opportunity for faculty to learn from each other and enhance the success of their students and colleges.
