Learning generators

project teams re-conceptualized

This paper offers a conception of a project team from a learning perspective.This conception includes project teams being considered "learning generators" by being an amalgam of many different "communities of practice" (Love & Wenger, 1991; Wenger, McDermott, & Snyder, 2002), which simulate an embryonic form of a new community of practice.Barriers to situated learning between project team members within the project environment are also illuminated.This paper presents practical structural attributes that form "learning bridges" to overcome these learning barriers within project teams.Additionally issues for research into project learning are explored.
