Engaging community is a very important part of the Open and Networked PhD. What is your long term community building approach to assisting your completion of an ONPhD?
- Outline your plan for engaging a learning community.
- Provide a link to this in this tasks discussion thread.
- Remember to join the ONPhD google group; http://groups.google.com/group/open-and-networked-phds

The P2Pu Open Masters program can provide one approach, and provides an excellent example of how to organize a focused learning group in a geographical area. With the ONPhD be creative in how you engage a community, think about it being a geographically distributed group or an existing Community of Practice. Keep in mind, an ONPhD is a new and emerging learning approach. So invent something wonderous...
