Learning for a Small Planet



This lecture on communities of practice, is delivered for trainee teachers by Professor Etienne Wenger, a leading expert on the subject.

Etienne discusses the nature of learning and how it should not be restricted to the traditional four walls of the classroom. Instead, it should be a lifelong exploration through myriad experiences.

Etienne suggests that learning should be understood in the context of multi-scale social systems which are dynamic communities of practice.

Practising and newly qualified teachers (NQTs) might also benefit from a exploring a fresh approach to teaching.
