      Hi everyone,

      I'm pleased to announce that this Sunday May 6 Learning2gether will be
      joined by Beyza Yilmaz who will speak to us about her research on
      belief's of members of a CoP.

      There it says

      This study investigated beliefs of members of an online Community
      of Practice (WIA) on the role of the community on professional
      development, teaching, and on Web 2.0 use. Through the analyses of the
      questionnaire, it was aimed at finding out the members’ ideas about
      the group as an online CoP and benefits of belonging to an online CoP.
      The findings revealed that the members believe that WIA plays an
      important role in the process of developing multiltiteracies skills
      and the Web 2.0 tools used in classroom teaching and for professional
      development. The findings further revealed that the participants
      believe that being a WIA member leads to motivation, collaboration and
      discovery. These beliefs are thought to provide insights about the
      advantages and disadvantages of learning in online CoPs and their
      effects on the members’ Web 2.0 use.
      The findings can also be beneficial for researchers, teacher
      trainers, and teachers wishing to join CoPs for professional
      development. They can understand the advantages and disadvantages, and
      the participation process in more detail. Moreover, these findings can
      indicate that online CoPs can provide a medium for coping with the
      increasing amount of information thanks to the recent technological
      developments, and acquiring new skills.

      Some of Beyza's findings are quite interesting and revelatory
      regarding how the Webheads community has managed to work well and hang
      together over the years.

      I hope you'll be able to join us.
