Blankenship, Selena S.; Ruona, Wendy E. A.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in The Americas (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
Due to the growing interest of school leaders in implementing learning communities as a way to build capacity for and sustain change, a better understanding of how the concepts of professional learning communities (PLCs) and communities of practice (CoPs) are related will aid educators in their quest to implement these concepts. This paper compares models of PLCs and CoPs and explores knowledge development and sharing within both concepts. Implications for both scholars and HRD practitioners are included.
