Sharing a passion for what they do

The Facilitators Community of Practice (FCoP) is a group of approximately 40 people who have training in, and are committed to, the practice of facilitation. Members come from the provincial civil service, crown corporations such as Health PEI, and other public-sector organizations.

"Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly," said Etienne Wenger.

The FCoP come together to strengthen their skills through learning and professional development, networking, sharing ideas, tips and successes in facilitation (practical tools), collaboration, and to gain additional experiences in facilitation practice. The group defines the principles of work in facilitation as maintaining confidentiality, continuous learning, collaboration, and continuous communication.
