Training Presentation: Moderating Community of Practice (COP) Discussions

Back in 2008 I was tasked to design, put together and instruct a one week certified training course for the U.S. Army for new facilitators of online communities of practice.

My first 16 slide PowerPoint training presentation release is titled “Moderating Community of Practice (COP) Discussions” and gives training on how to moderate online conversations.
