Establishing a Learning Community to Support Research and Scholarly Training: A Case Study
Mills, Jane; Birks, Melanie; Francis, Karen
Academic Leadership Journal in Student Research, v2 Spr 2014
This paper examines the concept of learning communities as defined in the literature. An existing case study is described, and the issues that facilitated and constrained the development of this learning community are considered and discussed. Strategies to address threats to the ongoing viability and usefulness of a learning community to support research training are offered. The influence of leadership styles and their interaction with the theoretical underpinnings of the concept of learning communities is used to support the argument.
