Jean Lave, Etienne Wenger and communities of practice

The idea that learning involves a deepening process of participation in a community of practice has gained significant ground in recent years.

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

Learning does not belong to individual persons, but to the various conversations of which they are a part.
