Network of Practice is a concept originated by John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid often abbreviated as NoPs. This concept, related to the work on communities of practice by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger, refers to the overall set of various types of informal, emergent social networks that facilitate information exchange between individuals with practice-related goals. In other words, networks of practice range from communities of practice where learning occurs to electronic networks of practice often referred to as virtual or electronic communities.
