Not just a talking shop: capturing the value in networks and Communities of Practice

Cleo Butterworth and Sam Hudson share how they’ve used the Wenger-Trayner/DeLaat Value Creation Framework to capture and assess value creation in NHS Communities of Practice.

11 Jul 2022
12:00 – 13:30

Join this extended Q network session to gain an understanding on how to recognise, capture and demonstrate the impact of your networks and / or Communities of Practice.

We will explore how social learning in networks makes a difference in a range of settings across health and social care, other industries, and globally.

It will also be a chance to try out five-cycle elements of the Wenger-Trayner / DeLaat Value Creation Framework, for finding and sharing the richness of value created by networks and communities, from the perspective of participants.

The five-cycle method enables convenors to tap into the immediate, potential, applied, realised and transformative value of communities.

Please note that this will be a highly interactive session, and be prepared to engage with cameras on for most of the time.

This session will be facilitated by:
