Abstract: This paper will discuss how an ongoing experience on collaborative learning in the industry field that aligns with the principles of a community of practice and how technology is used to support the learning and development processes. It is a conceptual analysis that is grounded on theoretical frames and that will provide the audience with opportunities to further reflect on learning communities. The authors present the main results and experiences from the use of knowledge networks. They start by comparing the community with pre-existing models, e.g. “Communities of Practice (CoP)” (Wenger & Snyder, 2000) and “Knowledge networks” (Büchel & Raub, 2002). The work is based on one on-going experience in the industry/services field, directly with Portuguese Technical Commissions (PTC), and it has several outputs such as new norms and directives elaboration, norm projects voting, working papers, norms translation (quality system), etc. There are over 204 persons involved in the 8 PTC managed by Technological Centre for the Metal Working Industry (CATIM) from several different organizations, technological centres, institutes, and universities. The final result is the value creation between the participants that sometimes enables practice rethinking and innovative processes. With the discussion of the experience we aim to contribute to further reflection and analysis of this emerging reality. (More)
