    • Develop both public and private community spaces
    • Focus on value
    • Combine familiarity and excitement
    • Create a rhythm for the community
  • 4. Design for Evolution
    • “ The key to designing for evolution is to combine design elements in a way that catalyzes community development”
  • 5. Open a dialogue between inside and outside perspectives
    • “ Good community design requires an understanding of the community’s potential to develop and steward knowledge, but it often takes an outside perspective to help members see the possibilities”
  • 6. Invite different levels of participation
    • Provide different ways to participate
    • allow different levels of commitment based on time and interest
    • encourage members to take on new roles in the community
  • 7. Develop both public and private community spaces
    • “ The key to designing community spaces is to orchestrate activities in both public and private spaces that use the strength of individual relationships to enrich events and use events to strengthen individual relationships”
  • 8. Focus on value
    • “ Rather than attempting to determine their expected value in advance, communities need to create events, activities, and relationships that help their potential value merge and enable them to discover new ways to harvest it”
  • 9. Combine familiarity and excitement
    • Successful communities combine familiar routines with “enough interesting and varied events to keep new ideas and new people cycling into the community”
  • 10. Create a rhythm for the community
    • “ If the beat is too fast … people stop participating because they are overwhelmed. When the beat is too slow, the community feels sluggish”
  • 11. Join us! http://scope.bccampus.ca 7 principles from Wenger, E., McDermott, R., & Snyder, W. M. (2002). Cultivating Communities of Practice. Boston: Harvard Business School Press.
