Case Study – the Department for Transport’s Community of Practice.
Presentation by Sian Jones and Michelle Dawson, Department for Transport
We suggest that you make sure that everyone in your Community of Practice is aware of your membership of the Association. If you have a social media presence for your group you might want to consider putting a link to this website on your resources page with information about how people can log on / register for events / access seminar reports.
There is a huge library of seminar reports, summaries and highlights on the Resources page of our website which can provide food for thought and prompt discussions.
All of our Highlights reports (specific link to highlights) are written with Communities of Practice in mind. They are short enough to be read by everyone within your community prior to a meeting and include “points for further discussion” to help you stimulate debates within your group.
You could also consider asking people who attend our seminars to present to your Community of practice what they learnt at the event. Seminar highlights and short reports will help them with this task.
We are setting up a speaker exchange between members so that you can hear how other people deliver major projects. If you are willing to offer a speaker to this programme please contact Manon Bradley via firstname.lastname@example.org with details. Once we have a number of speakers available we will begin to promote the service.
