Communities of practice
Communities of practice are “groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly”. The idea was developed by Etienne and Beverley Wenger-Trayner.
A community of practice needs three things: a shared interest, a community and a practice plus time and regular interaction.
- shared interest: community members share an interest or domain, are committed to it and have shared skills and know how.
- community: community members come together in joint activities and discussions, help each other, share information, build relationships, grow trust, learn from each other and care about everyone doing well.
- practice: community members are practitioners and develop shared resources and practices such as experiences, stories, tools and ways of addressing recurring problems.
