7 Strategies to Facilitate “Working Out Loud”


The more I thought about it, the more it seemed to me that it is one of the fundamental blocks of building a community of practice. A community grows around a domain where practitioners share their insights, knowledge and doubts, the work processes. A community grows through conversation, collaboration, and showcasing of work in progress. Community members learn together, share feedback, take onus of building the domain. Take Linux or the GitHub community for example.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Several sources referred to PLNs as networks focused on learning about a given topic. Still others were from the perspective of the educational community and how PLNs can replace formal education.
