This paper recounts how a small diverse group of academics working across multiple campuses of Central Queensland University met to discuss some issues relating to assessment practices within teaching. As the group structure evolved, some participants were motivated to form a smaller group to tackle a teaching and learning grant to research the affective nature of the discussions on their practices. This paper focuses on the journey by the smaller group, to form a community of practice and in so doing, as a way of identifying its existence, draws on Wenger’s indicators of a community of practice.
