Digital Interventions 4

What does it take to develop a ‘sticky’ networking site for leaders in the Creative Arts?

The answer to this question was sought through designing, developing, implementing and reflecting on ‘createED’, a national strategic network that combined elements of virtual communities of practice and knowledge networks. The digital intervention was part of an ALTC funded project that looked at ways to strengthen learning and teaching leadership in the Creative Arts disciplines (de la Harpe, Peterson, Blythe, Frankham, Vella, Street, Brien & Cahalan, 2009).
