Flexible Learning Leader Project - Create a CoPo

The Flexible Learning Leaders project I will be researching during 2004 is:

'To investigate the use of an effective online communication tool as a means of encouraging information exchange between Education (TAFE) and Industry (Tourism and Hospitality) practitioners. An expected outcome of this project is the development of an online community of practice that TAFE and Industry practitioners can access and utilize to exchange timely information. '

I intend to investigate best practice online community of practices, what works, what doesn't and how to encourage staff and Industry to want to become part of this community. A major focus of this community will be the use of asynchronous discussion forums. I also intend to investigate techniques and strategies for effective use of these discussion boards by both staff members, industry personel and also the use of these forums in the classroom environment. I would welcome any comments/ideas/strategies/techniques that any of you can share with me.
