Starting a CoP

From the spark of your idea conceptualise the community of practice - the focus, facilitator, members, champion, institutional goals and context, opportunities and challenges.

Getting started

  • Establish a core of members for the first meeting - who would share your concern or passion for your CoP domain?
  • Send invitation - consider timing, venue and catering
  • Prepare agenda (using template below) - welcome, introductory activities, sharing practice, building domain knowledge 
  • Initial meeting - begin with introductions, explain the community of practice concept, confirm the focus, members set priorities and plan the way forward.
