A Community of Practice – A Learning Network

Hello Colleagues,
You’re cordially invited to an emerging community of practice with

                             

Raising the Value of Learning with time currency in shared activities
The structural characteristics of a community of practice are defined as
a domain of knowledge, a notion of community and a diversity of practice:

                    
What is the Domain?  An ecosystem in terms of Raising the Value of Learning
A domain of knowledge creates common ground, inspires members to participate, guides their learning, and gives meaning to their actions.

Who is the Community?  Membership in The Learning Network (commons)
The notion of a community creates the social fabric for that learning. A strong community fosters interactions and encourages a willingness to share ideas.

How to Practice?  Applying time currency to community learning activities 
While the domain provides the general area of interest for the community, the practice is the specific focus around which the community develops, shares and maintains its core of knowledge.

Grow: Raising the Value of Learning and Doing

Let’s Co-produce
Raising the Value of Learning and Doing
by the application of time currency
to activities with groups and networks


All conveners, change-makers, host facilitators, and coaches are invited
to co-create unique people-led projects by involving the people who will benefit in

the Design – Development – Delivery – Defense

Our intended audience is connected and thriving communities
where people not only know one another by name.
But are inspired to meet each other’s needs, share their resources and
knowledge, and collectively build the world they dream is possible.

AKA “Sustainable Economies through Community Organizations”

What would a unique project be, you ask?
It’s something that you and your group would co-produce and love to see possible?
