In this poster, we characterize a Community of Practice that emerged among facilitators of a hybrid, cross-institutional, seven-week workshop series on course design for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The Community of Practice consisted of 19 leaders at eight institutions who are developers of trainees and represent various professional roles and career stages. We share our survey examining the functional and sustaining features of the community. We illustrate the factors that contributed to the community's success in supporting members' collective activities. Furthermore, we demonstrate the importance of the community, and specifically a multi-institutional community, for members' wellbeing during the pandemic.
