Examining Electronic Learning Communities through the Communities of Practice Framework
American Journal of Distance Education Volume 29, Number 4, ISSN 0892-3647
This qualitative interpretive case study used Wenger's (1998) communities of practice (CoP) framework to analyze how the electronic learning community (eLC) process at an established state virtual high school operated like a community of practice. Components of the eLC process were analyzed according to elements of the CoP framework, which provided a theoretical lens through which to analyze data gathered through interviews, observations, and document collection. Findings revealed several areas of alignment between the eLC process and the CoP framework, particularly with Wenger's notion of practice within a CoP as a duality between participation and reification.
