Design a Community of Practice

Implementation Package

The purpose of this implementation package
is to help you plan and design for social learning, including launches and relaunches of social learning initiatives, communities of practice and networks.

To design a community of practice often requires productive interaction between a diversity of groups whose voices are essential to developing a sustainable social learning design.

To be more precise, we conduct a systematic review of the type of professional insights that are necessary for effectiveness of social learning in order to optimize the quality of  outputs, their implementation and effect on your organization.
