Communities of Practice are groups of individuals who share a deep and genuine interest in their field of work, have a desire to improve their practice, and who respect their colleagues as fellow learners and practitioners. These communities have also been described as "intentional communities". Intentionality is largely what makes them different from informal networks. Communities of Practice have the potential to be powerful mechanisms both for improving performance and for enhancing individual member's skills, confidence, application and interest in their field.
