Excellent video interview with Wenger.
Interview with Etienne Wenger on Communities of Practice â€” Knowledge Lab
Etienne Wenger is one of the founding fathers of Social Learning Theory and the concept of â€œPracticed Communitiesâ€. People are learning together â€“ every individual deals and engage in many different communities of practice. Here people negotiate and define what competence and knowledge is. To know something or to be competent builds on the individuals experiences of being in the world – learning is a constant transformation or journey of the self.
