An interactive workshop to share experience and best practices for enabling virtual collaborative design and establishing a virtual community of practice


Over 40 years ago, the worldwide web created a platform for scientific communities to connect and grow online. However, we are still struggling with these basic questions:

●     What do we really know about how to best support a community of practice… virtually?

●     What factors make a discussion forum successful and what resources in terms of time, money, technology, etc are required?

●     What methods and tools might we use to enable our community of practitioners to answer each other’s questions, share best practices, and for us to track end-user questions and barriers and answer questions in real-time?

In this engaging virtual workshop, participants will connect with other professionals who have set up — or are interested in starting — a community of practice, specifically in the area of planet-centered design and sustainable development.
