Join a Community of practice. Be part of
self-defined, collective conversation to share
learning through mutual engagement known as
communities of practice (Cop) (based on the
writings of etienne Wenger). A community of
practice evolves around a shared practice, craft,
or domain of knowledge. Members of the
community are encouraged to ask questions,
share ideas, and advances in the particular
field of practice. Cops foster personal and
professional growth and also encourage
innovation in the practice domain.
