Follow-up from the Leadership Learning Community Webinar

Nancy White

Last Monday I was a guest of the Leadership Learning Community for an short online gathering. Communities, Networks and Engagement: Finding a Place for Action. But what happens when we say “we’re building an online community” but few engage? My experience is that in communities where people care about what they are working with (the “domain”) they also care about quality and help weed out the “iffy” stuff.

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.

Communities of Practice: Conversations to Collaboration by Steve Dale

Elsua

For a good number of years Communities (of Practice, of Interest, of Purpose, etc. You can check out the deck over here (Or flip through the embedded slides below) and in it you would be able to find the following topics covered: "What is a "Community of Practice" (CoP)?"

The need for educators in communities

Steve's Musings on Education

A “learning community” (defined for now as a group with both individual learning and the creation of group knowledge as goals) that has been together a long time has a history and has progressed in developing ideas and practices of group interaction. In this sense, established communities are similar to established professions. Thus, there is a component of an established community that could be served by community members who are also educators.

MirandaNet: Social Networking trivial or mind expanding?

Community Capers

It’s taken a long time but since 1992 MirandaNet members have been learning how to communicate on line. Now an e-mature community our discussions are becoming more and more sophisticated. They then use these community texts in their own professional context to impact on policy and practice. My hope is that if more people learn how to use this facility we will begin to have democratic participation. Braided Learning: Promoting Active Professionals in Education.

Levitt, Popkin and Hatch, in their article "Building Online Communities for High Profile Internet Sites" wrote, "Communities are organic in nature and site owners cant make them successful or force them to grow. As site owner can only provide the fertile ground on which a community may grow, and then provide some gentle guidance to help the group thrive. Much of the challenge in fostering an online community is social, rather than technical."

» The Dangers of “Retrospective Coherence”

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Cognitive Edge: Communities of Practice : I was an observer in a debate recently on the question of whether a community of practice had to be self-organising, or if it could be directed. My own view is that communities can evolve, but cannot be designed top down. So begins one of my favorite education writers although I think he might be more appropriately thought of as a learning advocate. So how do we learn? We evolve our own communities.
