This paper reports the perceived benefits and limitations of a Community of Practice following a survey of participants. The Community of Practice was established as a means of professional learning for academic staff in a regional university in Queensland, Australia. The university has an institutional vision for a blended approach to learning and teaching. The Community of Practice was established in a series of phases following an implementation plan based on Kotter's 8-Step change leadership model (Kotter & Cohen, 2002).
