Abstract: Technology has changed the way how people communicate, teach, learn, and live. This change has also changed the traditional definition of a community that is primarily relied on geographical locations. The current researches as well as the theories such as situated cognition and social constructivism support a community of inquiry and practice. To foster a community of inquiry and practice, the staff in the Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning Technology at Fort Hays State University has tried different strategies to foster a culture of sharing among faculty: group-based training and sharing, individualized consultation and support, and Web-based training and support. While sharing our strategies for the professional development, we are challenged and inspired to look for new models for the professional development in the future.
