Communities of Practice for Development: Good Practices and Lessons Learned
To access new or deeper knowledge and to enhance connectivity among practitioners, Communities of Practice can be critical tools; however, devising sustainable Communities of Practice that address complex development problems effectively is often challenging.
Organized in partnership with IDLO, and building on the 2018 KPSRL Annual Conference session related to Communities of Practice, this dedicated workshop brings together practitioners to share and exchange good practices and lessons learned, to help foster effective Communities of Practice in the development sector.
The key objectives of the workshop are to:
- share reflections from pilot and established initiatives;
- gather experiences and good practices from participants and facilitators in Communities of Practice;
- review and exchange on updates to a Community of Practice Toolkit (shared as part of the workshop), incorporating lessons; and
- explore where there may be opportunities for greater collaboration of Community of Practice facilitators for continued knowledge exchange.
The workshop will be hosted by Pamela Kovacs, IDLO’s Research and Learning Manager with expert insights from Kaushik Roy and Francesca Rappocciolo, IDLO’s Learning and Knowledge Management Initiative team. To inspire deliberations, experiences and lessons will be shared from building a Community of Practice at IDLO in relation to customary and informal justice.
A light lunch will be served following the workshop.
