Community Capers

Some members act as e-facilitators or braiders who help to shape the argument, provide interim summaries and change the direction of the discussion (Preston, 2002; Preston & Holmes, 2002; Cuthell, 2005). This concept of a Community of Practice (CoP) is key to understanding how braided learning works online. It has been described by researchers as a CoP “with an active and passionate core’ (Stuckey, 2005, p. 2002). Holmes (2002). 2002). 2002).

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'. A central part of the initiative has been partnership: several organizations joined forces to bring the resources necessary for the 'project' together (World Bank, UCCI, cities, local organizations).

Microsoft on Emergency Response

Michael Sampson - Currents

The Microsoft Innovation Centre was established in August 2002 to support innovating ideas from government agencies. The centre has funded 28 projects since 2002, and Microsoft puts up to $1 million a year into the Center (in New Zealand). Some of the projects are: - Government Address Book (NZ Fire). Mobile Incident Location COP (NZ Police). I am at a Microsoft event in Christchurch (New Zealand), co-presented by Intergen New Zealand.

Therefore CoP sponsoring is a difficult sell in corporate environments, on indeed anywhere that resources are managed. Intuitive evidence and personal experience of users suggest that a good CoP creates enormous value, but pinning it down in a financial report is another matter.

Cover story: Building healthy communities - Inside Knowledge

John Tropea - Delicious Community

The concept of communities of practice (CoPs), as defined in the book, Cultivating Communities of Practice , was simple: an informal group of peers sharing ideas, insight, information and help about a topic they are deeply, sometimes passionately, interested in.

Innovation and Communities of Practice

John Tropea - Delicious Community

While cross-functional teams are key players in defining and implementing incremental innovation projects, cross-functional disruptive individuals tend to be key players in defining radical innovation projects.”1 The natural partners to meet that task are the project communities and other forms of communities of practice.

If you want a really good example of what I’m talking about, compare Etienne Wenger’s original book Communities of Practice (1998) with his more recent (coauthored) Cultivating Communities of Practice (2002). It establishes some vocabulary and principles, it gives you some nice ways of structuring an approach to CoPs, and then it abandons you at the gate of doing anything practical.
