Summary This chapter draws on research conducted by the authors from several research projects located in both Australia and Hong Kong with adult learners who participate in communities of practice and communities of learning in their own work or life contexts, and provides insights into how these outside-institution learning environments can be used in more deliberate blending to enhance student learning experience. Their focus is on how formal learning communities can be blended with more informal and often naturally occurring workplace communities, and the interaction that can occur as they make a case for including this phenomenon in the definition of blended learning.
