Promoting Professional Development Through Communities of Practice – an Example of Educational Development in Sweden

Mårtensson, Katarina LU and Roxå, Torgny LU (2011) In Faculty and Professional Learning Communities: Effectively Engaging Communities of Practice in Higher Education
Abstract
This chapter explores the idea of community of practice in relation to Swedish educational development. Two authentic cases illustrate how faculty developers work together as a CoP to promote change within universities. The two cases and their results are scrutinized in relation to key features of CoP, where one case arguably came out stronger as a CoP mainly in terms of identity building. The text concludes by summarizing some keys to success when communities of practice approaches are used in professional development.
