Learn Together

Evolve a CoP

Community of Practice leadership responsibilities include collaborating with community members and sponsors to develop and implement a learning agenda. A CoP Charter, which can be used to outline this agenda, is a living document designed to guide decision making in order to promote an integrated and comprehensive learning plan for the community. The intent of a learning agenda is to enhance efforts, combine planning, and take steps to meet the needs of the community effectively and efficiently. To begin creating a learning agenda, consider the following:

  • Host a brainstorming session for community members to discuss the domain-related topics they would like to learn more about
  • Assign identified topics to individuals (or small teams)
  • Ask each topic owner to research and distribute information on their category
  • Request that all members review materials prior to the next meeting
