    • In search of good practices in Lifelong E-Learning
      • Round table based on assignments and mindmaps of the participants (initial discussions)
      • For Etienne Wenger , learning is central to human identity .
      • A primary focus of Wenger’s work is on learning as social participation – the individual as an active participant in the practices of social communities, and in the construction of his/her identity through these communities.
      • From this understanding develops the concept of the community of practice : a group of individuals participating in communal activity, and experiencing/continuously creating their shared identity through engaging in and contributing to the practices of their communities.
      • 1. The domain : Lifelong E-Learning
      • 2. The community : members of this CoP will engage in joined activities, discussion, help each other and share information. Members build relations among each other that enable them to learn from each other
      • 3. The practice : Members of the community of practice are practitioners. They develop a shared repertoire of resources: experiences, stories, tools, ways of addressing recurring problems—in short a shared practice.
    • A virtual community of practice
      • Virtual collaboration if you can’t work side by side
      • finding the right group of people (skills, personalities, knowledge, work-styles, and chemistry),
      • ensuring they share commitment to the collaboration task at hand, and providing them with an environment, tools, knowledge, training, process and facilitation to ensure they work together effectively.
      • This is challenging enough face-to-face in real-time. It's doubly difficult virtually and asynchronously.
