“It is important to emphasise that continuous Improvement isn’t one particular system or specific way of doing something, it’s a mindset, based on the knowledge that there is always a better way of doing things and therefore a journey that never ends.”
This toolkit has been conceptualised within a co-learning paradigm, incorporating key principles such as: peer learning, reciprocal value of knowledge sharers, mutual trust, and collective and individual meaning-making. While the workshops and other such events we organised as part of this process helped in the formulation of certain self-defined guideposts in the journey of community radio practitioners, the medium to long-term goal is to facilitate the forging of a community of practice.
The “community of practice,” as we understand, is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact with each other regularly.
We strongly believe that every Community Radio station has scope for continuous improvement, the toolkit we have designed also has scope for continuous improvement.
Since we all share a passion for Community Radio, its practitioners, communities and other stakeholders, we thought it was important for us to set up Community of Practice so that we can all learn from each other. CR-CIT-COP is a forum for you to share:
- Your experiences while using the toolkit
- Your success stories / stumbling blocks vis-a-vis a particular parameter
- Your feedback on the toolkit itself–parameters, questions (the types and options)
