Hosting a Community of Hosting Practice

Welcome to the Art of Hosting Community of Practice at Ohio State University.  This site will serve us as a virtual container: a space for inquiry, exchange and reflection about the practices of the Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter.

Hosting practitioners have been active at Ohio State for a number of years.  Following a training session at the Audubon Center in April 2019, several of us realized that we needed a way to sustain and develop our collective learning, and to build on the relationships that emerged during the training.  Accordingly, we issued a call for participants to help build a community of practice by gathering at the Research Commons of the 18th Avenue Library on May 3, 2019.

A community exists to meet the needs of its members. The purpose of our community of practice is:

  • To deepen our understanding of hosting principles
  • To develop and extend our hosting skills
  • To support each other in the work of hosting conversations that matter.

We intend to keep these purposes at the center of our gathering and our learning.

  1. AOHIO is an open, emergent learning community. While its core is composed of people who have attended AoH training sessions, we welcome anyone committed to holding conversations that matter and interested in developing the skills to do so.
