If you’re going to have a community that consists of a group of people you need to track what it is that they really want. With teachers, they aren’t able to fully engage in an community because of how busy they are. The majority of teachers are pressed for time. One suggestion is to interview community members to find out what they truly desire, without this you won’t know which direction to go in. The research allows you to get down to what is truly desired and find ways to make that happen.
- The recommendation for teachers too busy to use the community was to make the community about how to save time.
- The first step is to do research and survey the members of the community.
- The Psychology of Community course teaches you how to conduct research and then build a community concept.
“Nailing the concept is one of the most powerful ways you can drive more activity and participation.”
