Expand Employee Learning With Communities of Practice
L&D professionals spend much of their time developing formal learning programs. Yet, in today’s work environment where geographically dispersed workforces may limit in-person gatherings, many budgets are constrained, and the pace of business is increasing, you need to be intentional about fostering experiences and peer interactions to keep learning going. Communities of practice can help you do just that. In this issue of TD at Work, Maggie Romanovich highlights how CoPs work. Further, she:
- Reviews different peer learning methods
- Discusses methods of creating, maintaining, and encouraging CoPs
- Outlines best practices for successful CoPs.
Tools & Resources included in this issue are a CoP worksheet, meeting discussion planning template, and results communication template.
