What makes a good Community of Practice

Community of practice imageExciting times!  A new Community of Practice is about to be born.  But more on that later.  For now it is time to explore best practice for setting up and maintaining a great community of practice.

So what is it that makes people engage and re engage in a Community of Practice.  Answering this question will be paramount because without engagement there is no community.

There are lots of resources available.  One of my favourite community practitioners in Nancy White.  Her fantastic book Digital Habitats  has been on my digital bookshelf for a few years now.  Finally I have a really good reason to read it properly rather than just skimming.

I have also joined Feverbee.  It is also a great resources with lots of active forums to explore.  I came across Feverbee several years ago and it has grown and changed a lot since I lasted visited.  So they must be doing a lot right.

So the research and planning stage begins!  I would love to hear others experiences so I will be sharing in the hope that others will comment.
