Communities of Practice

Becky Millard

A community of practice is a multi-session, facilitated conversation among members of a particular group with a goal of creating positive change related to an area of common interest. 

Communities of practice explore a topic or area of shared inquiry. Members of a community of practice decide what areas of the topic they wish to explore. Facilitators help guide the conversation and gather and share resources to support the group’s learning.

Northern Lights offers several communities of practice with a particular focus on topics for advanced-level practitioners. To see upcoming community of practice opportunities from Northern Lights, visit the Training Calendar.
