Key Concepts

The CaRE Project set out to develop a transnational network of schools in which our framework for collaboration and reflection is integrated and supportive of an environment in which Continuous Professional Learning is the norm within and between the institutions. We envisioned creating a pragmatic and flexible structure that can be adapted by educational institutions to support their development and integration of CaRE practices.

Community of Practice

A key element of the CaRE project is a Community of Practice (CoP), which is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or interest in a topic and who come together to fulfill both individual and group goals.

CoPs often focus on sharing best practices and creating new knowledge to advance a domain of interest or professional practice. Interaction on an ongoing basis is an important part of this. A communityโ€™s specific purpose and goals inform the appropriate activities and technologies that should support it.
