Humans learn through social interactions therefore it is not surprising that we create around ourselves social structures that guide and support our learning as well as our practice. Communities of practice are one such social structure that exists within fields of science. Understanding the secondary cultures that are represented in the epistemology, practices, and perceptions of each field can help us better approach reform in fields using communities of practice as a starting point. The intersections of communities, culture, and change represent challenges to reform in education that should be explored and leveraged.
