Abstract:Micro learning communities (LCs) are seen as promising tool for interprofessional learning as participants collaborate interdisciplinary. This has the advantage of providing a broader knowledge perspective, yet it is disadvantageous as knowledge boundaries arise. To reduce this, team members go through that ongoing process of action and reflection and engage in team learning (TL) activities and team reflexivity (TR) activities. However, literature on the relation of these team activities is limited, especially when it comes to their development over time. This research studies the distribution of TL-activities and TR-activities per micro LC, if a difference of distribution of TL-activities and TR-activities is found per team development (TD) phase and what patterns of TL-activities and TR-activities are found per TD phase. In this research, five micro LCs were analysed. The results indicated firstly that TL-activities and TR-activities based on frequencies and duration of time differed for all micro LCs. Secondly, it was found that TL-activities and TR-activities differed per TD phase. Thirdly, learning patterns were found in TD phases. To further expand these insights, future research should consider the role of the facilitator, the content quality of the TL-activities and TR-activities and the TL-activities and TR-activities carried out between meetings.
