Sometimes blogging can be a lonely activity, sending an arrow into the air to land I know not where. But sometimes I am privileged to get incredibly thoughtful comments from some of the sharpest minds in the field. This was the case regarding my recent post on communities of practice. Linda Harasim, Stephen Downes and several others have already provided very thoughtful and thought-provoking comments.
So I am using a full blog post to bring this discussion to your attention. If you have not already done so, I suggest you go to: The Role of Communities of Practice in a Digital Age, read the post itself, then read the comments. Any contributions you can make to this discussion will be very much welcomed.
