Objectives for our time together:

●  Meet up for fellowship and getting to know each other better in person and also with those joining virtually

●  Engaging in cultural immersive experiences or rituals together; have folks from different cultural origins lead us in participating in an experience or ritual from their culture

●  Share teaching and educational resources to help build more diverse resources for CPE

●  Share stories of CoP members’ experiences as CPE students in the US– Learning from these to enhance our practice in N. America

●  Learn from each other’s practices to create/engender a CPE model that is most conducive for learning for students from cultures outside of the dominant N. American culture

●  Fun exploration of “What if Anton Boisen had been from another country? What would CPE be like?

●  What are our hopes for this CoP and our contribution to ACPE?
