Cultivating Communities of Practice: Making Them Grow. Communities of Practice are everywhere (Wenger, 1998). While this may be the case, it is possible to examine an organisation and find empty spaces where opportunities to cultivate communities of practice (CoPs) exist, and as one does, many questions relating to how this journey is best started begin to arise. The transcript of the multimedia resource is attached as appendix A.

Digital Habitats for project teams

Digital Habitats

That got me thinking about the difference between a project team and a community as far as their digital habitat is concerned. Of course there are many project teams that have spawned communities and many communities that have launched projects, so there are many connections.

Reviving Community Indicators – Learning

For long time readers of this blog, you know I’ve been obsessed with “signs of life&# from communities which I call “ community indicators.&# This sure is a community indicator in my eyes, capturing (or “reifying&# – definition below!)

How I use social media

Nancy White

This afternoon I’m spending a half hour on a Skype video conversation to share a bit of how I use social media. I figured it would be good to exercise my memory a bit and unearth some of the key stories that led me to to my social media use today, and perhaps surface some of my patterns.

Formalizing stories about community leadership

Learning Alliances

I’m working with several meta-communities: communities of practice made up of people who are themselves supporting communities. Of course CPsquare is very much my “main meta-community&# but I’m a bit surprised at how these meta-communities are turning up. (I I guess I shouldn’t be, since that’s where I started 10 years ago working to get a meta-community going at StorageTek.).

Is social housing (still) sleepwalking into a digital nightmare?

Social Reporter

Back in 2002 a group of us co-authored a book for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation about why social landlords, and their residents, should be concerned about joining the online world both for its benefits and because of the way public services were going digital. It was well-received by the relatively few people then focused on the issue … but didn’t get a lot of attention in the sector despite a mini-campaign.

The Changing Role of the Learning Facilitator

Jenny Connected

There is an intense discussion going on in the CPsquare community at the moment about the work of learning facilitators. Quite a few members of the CPsquare community work independently as community facilitators or for an organisation. Others like myself, are members of CPsquare not so much because we work as community facilitators, but because we are interested in social learning theory and how people learn in communities of practice.

MirandaNet: Social Networking trivial or mind expanding?

Community Capers

Now an e-mature community our discussions are becoming more and more sophisticated. We now have examples of interchange where members are creating new knowledge online. They then use these community texts in their own professional context to impact on policy and practice. Braided learning is a theory that has emerged from the observation of modes of online learning as the MirandaNet community of professionals has matured in digital competence.

Practical example: Ayuda Urbana

Joitske Hulsebosch

Etienne Wenger wrote a case study in 2002 about Ayuda Urbana , a constellation of communities of practice focused on urban issues and challenges in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean region, or as they call themselves: 'Red Inter-municipal'. The initiative followed the move of the World Bank to become the 'knowledge bank'. Different cities volunteered to coordinate one or two communities of practice.

Opening space in Melbourne, and the fifth principle

Chris Corrigan

It’s sweet for me being here in Melbourne, which for me is the spiritual home of Open Space in Australia (would you agree Brendan? :-)). Of course for me that impression largely comes from the fact that this was Father Brian Banibridge’s home, and I regret that I never made it here while he was alive, only able to meet him over the years at various OSonOS gatherings or when he stopped by our place on retreat or en route to elsewhere.
