A Community of Practice (CoP) is about bringing together people who share a passion, concern or common interest in a subject and who interact on a regular basis to share practices, develop knowledge and improve the way they do things.
The elements of a community of practice include:
- a shared area of interest or knowledge
- a community of members who pursue their interest in the domain through participating in activities, discussions and sharing
- a practice of shared resources such as tools, experience and problem solving.
