Professional Development on an International Scale: Council of Europe--Pestalozzi Programme Virtual Community of Practice
PROCEEDINGS

European Distance and E-Learning Network Annual Conference,

Abstract

Communities of practice as organisations of learning have developed different forms as: task-based, practice-based or knowledge based communities (Barab et al., 2004). The paper presents a case study of a successful community of practice developed under the umbrella of Council of Europe Pestalozzi programme for teacher development. The programme itself is transformative, enabling the combination of a number of processes and conditions of learning. One of the most important ways of supporting teacher learning and professional development for education professionals is through ongoing activities within the virtual community of practice (vCoP).This paper presents the opportunities and challenges inherent to such an endeavour.
