Show Notes

Communities of Practice are organised groups who engage in learning across a common interest and they can be a valuable resource to individuals for professional development or organisations as a source of knowledge and expertise.

Many CoPs are created on the premise that “if we build it, they will come,” but building is just the beginning. Emelia Winter talks to Learning Uncut about how she transitioned a Working Group into a Community of Practice for L&D Consultants at NSW Health. She shares her insights around what has made the community successful, the challenges in running and sustaining a CoP and the benefits it has had for both the members and the organisation.
