Supported by both practical case studies and current research, contributors suggest strategies that readers can use to create their own effective communities of practice. Chapters explore topics including: Communities as a method of regeneration within universities Cultivation of knowledge through community collaboration Questions of power in transdisciplinary communities Mapping career pathways through communities of practice Bringing together theory and practice, this is an essential resource for all involved in strategic planning, organisational development, and fostering a positive organisational culture within higher education.
