Communities of Practice are designed to engage learners in a process of learning constructed around common interests, ideas, passions, and goals. Oxfam, RTI International, and Tetra Tech have each used various methods and technical solutions to engage Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning CoPs within their respective organizations. Have you been considering starting a CoP at your organization? Do you know what would make a CoP successful? What does it takes to start a CoP? In this session, practitioners from Oxfam, RTI International, and Tetra Tech will share their experiences in starting and maintaining a CoP.

The session will highlight the characteristics of CoPs within these organizations; demonstrate the value of developing a Community of Practice; provide practical tools and examples that others can use to start a CoP; and share learnings from working with Communities of Practice. The session will help you identify the needs that your team can address by creating a CoP as well as talk through the obstacles you may encounter. Whether you’ve been managing a CoP for a long time or looking to just start one, the session will provide a space for discussion, feedback, and sharing of experiences.
