Abstract

There are many definitions of the term community of learners, but regardless of which is used, it is important for instructional designers, instructors, and facilitators to understand how these informal groups can enhance – or thwart – a learning event or program. In this paper, we are particularly interested in “virtual” communities of learners, the challenges they face, and some specific ways that we will try to meet their needs in a web-based learning program designed to facilitate the development of expertise in handling sensitive pharmaceutical products. The design research approach and methodology of the study are explained, together with emerging design principles.
