Communities of Practice: Creating Learning Environments for Educators ~ Book Discussion

kimble Interested in an online summer book discussion about communities of practice? If so, you may want to check out the one hosted and facilitated by CPsquare, the community of practice on communities of practice.

We will be reading and discussing selected chapters from the 2-volume Communities of Practice: Creating Learning Environments for Educators, edited by Chris Kimble and Paul Hildreth. The books are not the easiest to locate, and the cheapest (and quickest) place to order is directly through the publisher (use this great discount for the pair that somebody found), which is where I got mine. To bad they are not both available via Amazon (odd, really, I think).

The event is free for members of CPsquare; otherwise it is $50 for non-members who will have to register here.

Let’s see what we can learn together this summer about communities of practice.

  1. Hi Jeffry,
    I came across your the comments on the availability of the book(s) on you blog and though I would explain. The books were only to be published as a two volume set, but eventually it was decided to make them available separately. So, there was one set of ISBN numbers for the two volume set, which was then pulled, followed by a new set of ISBN numbers for the individual books.

    If you really want you can get them through Amazon. All of the ISBN numbers and the links to Amazon are on the web site:

    Bizarrely, in the UK, two two books bought separately cost less than the two volumes bought as a set!
