Communities of Practice Bibliography
including books, articles, and videos on theory, practice, examples, and so on...
... usually including comments, assessments, and links.
This purpose of this collection of pointers to (and commentary on) work on communities of practice is to help practitioners and scholars pick out the most important references -- that turn up in many different locations. It is a resource provided by CPsquare that has grown over the years with contributions from many people. It began at http://learningalliances.net then lived at http://cofpractice-biblio.wikispaces.com/ where many members of com-prac contributed to it and was migrated here in December 2008. If you find this resource to be useful, please request an account and add to our collection.
