  29. 32. Etienne Wenger “ Communities of practice are formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain of human endeavor. ” http://www.ewenger.com/theory/
  30. 33. Community of Practice <ul><li>The domain: A community of practice is not merely a club of friends or a network of connections between people. It has an identity defined by a shared domain of interest.
  31. 34. The community: In pursuing their interest in their domain, members engage in joint activities and discussions, help each other, and share information. They build relationships that enable them to learn from each other.
  32. 35. The practice: Members of a 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. This takes time and sustained interaction. http://www.ewenger.com/theory/ </li></ul>
  33. 36. Wenger (2002) further describes CoPs as communities which: • Share information, insight, and advice; • Help each other solve problems; • Discuss situations, aspirations, and needs; • Ponder common issues; • Explore ideas and act as sounding boards; • Create tools, standards, generic designs, manuals, and other documents; • Are bound by values in learning together; • Develop, over time, a unique perspective on their topic as well as a body of common knowledge, practices, and approaches; • Develop personal relationships; • Exist as a group with both core members and occasional participants.
