Social-historically created and shared behavioural patterns, routines, or procedures of working with knowledge consisting of an interconnected and inseparable array of recurrent activities, conventions, rules and norms that play part in working with knowledge objects
, and/or in the creation of knowledge artefacts
and/or in the reflection of related practices. Knowledge practices can refer to various kinds of time-scales and arrays of activities with various complexities, including longer term activities with high complexity like e.g. ways of organizing a whole course, or more focused and simple arrays of activities like e.g. ways of commenting someone’s paper. Knowledge practices represent socially constituted, rather than merely individual activities. Individual agents may, however, develop innovative practices of their own through networking connections with expert communities.
