What is a Community of Practice?

"In essence, communities of practice are groups of people who share similar goals and interests. In pursuit of these goals and interests, they employ common practices, work with the same tools and express themselves in a common language."         ~ Collaborative Visualization (CoVis) Project

Purpose and Goals of a Community of Practice

The purpose of the Community of Practice is:

  • engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain
  • enrich the learning environment for ALL students in Rocky View
  • empower ourselves as professionals to work collaboratively


The goals for each Community of Practice are:

1. build relationships that enable each member to learn,

2. develop a shared understanding of current best practice for the 21st Century Learner,

3. commit to develop and implement resources and/or strategies that meet the needs of ALL students in the 21st Century.


Professional Learning Model

Rocky View Schools has adopted this learning model to assist in moving towards a 21st Century Learning Environment.



"A community of practice is "a diverse group of people engaged in real work over a significant period of time during which they build things, solve problems, learn and invent...in short, they evolve a practice that is highly skilled and highly creative."

~  Robert Bauer, Ph.D., Director, Xerox PARC,
