Know Your Community of Practice

Fewer and fewer problems today are solved by individuals, and knowing the community of practice for your profession is crucial to bringing people together. This means understanding the full collective and individual potentials of social capital within a team, department, organization, etc., so that individuals can locate support and groups can act and solve problems more effectively.

GooglFormsisue Forms is an incredibly efficient tool for gathering such information and opinions that can reveal these potential resources. I designed a survey as part of a graduate course for Michigan State University’s MA in EdTech program which looked specifically at technology integration practices within my school’s EFL department. While the survey is anonyous and perhaps not directly relevant to your occupation, I hope the analysis illustrates just how helpful it can be to have this information.
