The CSIAC’s community of practice (CoP) is a feature that adds an additional element to the IAC’s traditional capabilities. In addition to providing access to a wealth of reports, resources and related STI, the CSIAC website now provides social networking functionality that allows practitioners to directly communicate with one another on a variety of topics relevant to the CSIAC technical domain.
The actual community is comprised of CSIAC staff members, team members, the wider-reaching network of subject matter experts (SMEs) and the CSIAC’s registered users. The site allows users to start new discussions, comment on specific documents and resources, and pose questions and/or opinions to an entire community of practitioners. The combination of technical content and social networking capabilities maximizes the CSIAC’s ability to disseminate information while overcoming the limitations of similar online communities.
