For the Love of Cops - Shelby Wilson on Communities of Practice

For the Love of CoPs…

The term “community of practice” is of relatively recent coinage, even though the phenomenon it refers to is age-old. The concept has turned out to provide a useful perspective on knowing and learning.
Though we may be unaware we are all in a Community of Practice and so I want to share with you my love of the COP, why I believe we are all in one without knowing, how they have helped us develop over the years and how they enrich our understanding, skills and practice for the greater good.
