Blog Post  –  Transcript 

Being the #OTgeeks that we are, the #OTalk team contributed to an editorial in the British Journal of Occupational Therapy which was published last week. Hopefully, this will give us the motivation to plough on with the write-up of our 2014 research evaluating the impact of #OTalk!

We would not be #OTalk without our community, and thought this week’s #OTalk would be a great opportunity to further explore some of the issues we touched on in our editorial. Join us tomorrow, Tuesday 19th April at 8pm GMT+1 on Twitter using the #OTalk hashtag to discuss online communities of research and practice.



The full-text of the editorial can be accessed for free at the Sage Journals website – either in web or PDF form (links open in a new window).


Here are some questions to start off the conversation:

  • For you, what is the value of building an online communities of practice?
  • How do you build your online networks? How do you maintain them?
  • How do you decide what tools are helpful or a hindrance?
  • How do you balance your time online?


If you would like further inspiration, you can also check out our 2013 poster about developing online communities of practice.
