This 2-page paper, provided by the Centers Collaborative for Technical Assistance (CCTA), is a community of practice best practices guide. CCTA offers a series of National Science Foundation Advanced Technology Education best practice guides. CCTA is comprised of five NSF ATE centers. CCTA was formed "in response to a Department of Labor request for technical assistance services to recipients of Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grants."

This guide provides information about communities of practice, groups of "people who share a concern or a set of problems." The following sections are included: Community of Practice, Community of Practice Objectives Defined, Why Communities of Practice Matter, Distinctive Group Qualities, and Communities of Practice Affiliated With ATE Centers.
