"As Ursula mentioned trust is a pre-condition for CoP members to use online tools for collaboration. So is a compelling and federative need. To fully understand the latter, we'd need to move from a concept of CoP, where emphasis is on belonging…"

Enticing AoHers to use on-line tools to support a community of practice

Many members of our local CoP are unfamilar with on-line social networking tools.  A previous attempt to launch a wiki for our group fizzled - few joined and few except the organizers posted content.    We are about to try again, using this platform for our group.  Any thoughts or experience on introducing wikis to newbies?  We want to help them get excited about the potential of this site, to get comfortable with the tools, and get started contributing to our virtual conversation.      See More
