Abstract

In this paper, we describe our efforts in the deliberate creation of a

(CSEd). We understand community of practice in the sense in

by mutual engagement in a joint enterprise that gives rise to a

We first identify CSEd as a research field in which no shared

its metaphor, structure, rationale, and delivery, as designed to create

other projects are also outlined that have similar aims of capacity

derived framework for evaluating the success of endeavours of

empirical study. We conclude with four open questions for our

practice? Who are the core members? Do capacity-building models

measures of success apply to other projects of the same nature?
