Bryan: Community’s Impact on Learning (Starts at: 3:22)

Technology has expanded our sense of the word community. Previously we may only have thought of a community as a town or neighborhood. Such a definition is centered around mostly a shared geographical location. Today communities can refer to a group that shares similars interests, needs or responsbilities without any concern for distance or even time (Rosenberg, 2005).

And in turn it seems that we are seeing the idea of communities mentioned more and more in both education and workplace training. More specifically we are seeing the idea of communities of practice. For example you may see Nursing students getting together to study, have regular discussions, share experiences, and ask each other for help. That can then expand beyond just students to also include educators, practicitioners, and experts in the field joining in on the discussion, offering advice and wisdom, and serving as mentors.

The act of building and joining a community has also been shown to bring about increased motivation, engagement, and better performance academically as well as in the workplace (Mac, Ivan, Reuman, & Main, 1995). So I am interested to hear if you all have stories in which joining or building a community impacted you and your education.
