We would like to thank all who volunteered as presenters for the upcoming year. We could not do this without you!

As always, feel free to invite your colleagues to participate in our Community of Practice. “A CoP can evolve naturally because of the members’ common interest in a particular domain or area, or it can be created deliberately with the goal of gaining knowledge related to a specific field. It is through the process of sharing information and experiences with the group that members learn from each other, and have an opportunity to develop personally and professionally (Lave & Wenger 1991).” Anyone can join this mailing list by sending a message to: join-datawonks@lists.wisc.edu.

Let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you all next week!
