KHL
Move! worked with the University College Leuven-Limburg to set up a Community of Practice on 'Coaching & Co'.  It brings teachers, managers, counselors, etc... together in order to learn with and from eachother from their experience using differt 'coaching like' methodologies with students, members of staff, or outside organizations they work with as 'consultants'.  It is not only about 'learning' but also about developing a common sense of ownership by the professonals for this specific 'practice'.  The idea is that the community will develop that practice further and introduce new ways and methodologies in the area of 'non directive support' for students and members of staff alike.  So far, we had two events with the Community and several side activities such as intervision are taking place.  Look at this video (in Dutch) to have an idea of the dynamics in this community.
 
 
This intervention, which was set up as a 'co-creative' intervention with a group of 'voluntary contributors', had a double purpose :
  • develop a culture of experiential and dialogic learning in a 'school setting' that is traditionally inclined to think of learning as 'knowledge transfer' and is set up as a 'bankconcept model of learning' in which ownership, self management and responsibility for your own learning is often not very well triggered.  To the contrary compliance, consumerism and 'copy behavior' is often required to do well in higher education... although we want to deliver 'autonomous professionals' to society.
  • Develop and renew the coaching practices and methodologies we use in our 'teaching' and 'management' in order to trigger that autonomous ownership attitude with students (during their internship for instance) and with managers (function talks for instance).  Besides the one on one methodologies we also focus on intervision, process facilitation, large group intervention, Appreciative Inquiry, networks, intervision etc...
We use a 'Community of Practice' not only as a 'learning network' but also as a co-creative policy and strategy process that has to lead to more distributed leadership.
