Hung, D. W. L., Hedberg, J., Tan, S. C., & Koh, T. S. (2003). Fostering communities of practice through learning communities. In Research in and on the classroom: ERAS Conference 2003 Proceedings (pp. 195-209). Singapore: Educational Research Association of Singapore.
This paper discusses the issue of fostering or building learning communities among heads
of department (HoD) in IT in Singapore schools. A preliminary study was conducted among 17 HoDs anchoring on the issues of IT MasterPlan II (MP2) in Singapore. The study reveals the issues of concern for these HoD ITs vis-à-vis the impending need to implement the pedagogically inclined stance of MP2. This paper presents a framework of
an evolving community of practitioners (CoP) along a simulation, participation, and codetermined interactions continuum. Simulation, participation, and co-determined interactions are three models of learning, which describe how learners are brought through a scaffolded process within a community experience.
