Welcome to a podcast about Communities of Practice in Workforce Education.  This podcast is brought to you by the Washington State Centers of Excellence for Agriculture & Natural Resource and Marine Manufacturing & Technology.  We recently connected with Joanne Munroe from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges for a conversation about communities of practice, what they are, and why they are important in workforce education.  We hope you’ll join us for our next podcast with Jo, focusing on the nuts and bolts of a workforce centered community of practice, critical elements, and how to put one together.
