Community Development Model: Community Evolution -- from Ad-Hoc to Strategic

Community Development Model: Community Evolution -- from Ad-Hoc to Strategic | Dr. Dan's Knowledge Management | Scoop.it


Dr. Dan:  Etienne Wenger's Community Development Model.

Dr. Dan Kirsch's insight:

The one thing that I do see is perhaps the need for a more a direct and visible linkage to organizational strategy and KM strategy.  I think that the implication is that the evolution will lead to that strategic connection but I also have seen communities where that didn't necessarily occur.  It's good to have an idea what specific needs a community fills as it moves from those lose networks to the strategic end of the spectrum -- how it addresses specific knowledge gaps and how it fits to that overall strategy.

Breaking the ice: Supporting collaboration and the development of community online

 

From the Abstract:


Icebreakers are fun activities that help people get to know each other. These activities can potentially ameliorate the perceived distance in online learning environments. Two author-developed icebreakers were used in a preliminary study involving university undergraduates and instructors in online environments. Respondents took part in an icebreaker at the start of a semester and at the mid-point after which they completed a questionnaire about perceived value of icebreakers. Early results were positive and have led to recommendations for practice.
