Learning is multifaceted and dynamic; it can slowly mature over time or be almost instantaneous. It is an individual process, but at the same time it can be made easier if it is encouraged within a community.
Sharing goals, emotions, values and beliefs is what transforms a group of individuals into a true community. Every learning community is unique in its raison d'être and in its members’ sense of belonging that encourages and reinforces the learning experience. Learners use each other as powerful resources, and differences are valued as a means of enriching the entire community.
Genuine cooperation is the goal. The learning that takes place within such communities is continually under study as the complexity involved in what unfolds and the mysteries in need of understanding are fascinating.
