Development of Virtual Communities of Practice to Support Programmatic Efforts within University Systems

March, 2012

As articulated by Etienne Wenger (1999) and other scholars, the ”community of practice” (CoP) represents a useful organizing concept for enhancing collaboration, sharing knowledge, and disseminating best practices among researchers and practitioners in postsecondary education. In this document, we outline the potential of developing online, virtual CoPs using web-based tools such as Microsoft SharePoint. Technology alone is not sufficient, however, and our recommendations underscore the need for organizational support and individual participation.
