Abstract

The SPEVI Community of Practice was created as a response to a call from keynote speaker Professor Mike McLinden at the SPEVI conference in January 2020 and the rapid move to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. This article outlines the response of the South Pacific Educators of Vision Impairment (SPEVI) to providing a domain, community and practice through an online Community of Practice to support specialist during this time. We wish to continue Communities of Practice to incorporate the priorities and pressing needs of SPEVI members, and to serve as a community to discuss issues surrounding the education of students who are blind or vision impaired.
