The current higher education curriculum emphasizes collaboration between academia and industry to present experiential learning environments for higher education students. One of the strategies we use to support learning environments is to provide students access to a community of practices (CoP), a group of people with common expertise and concern, enabling sharing of practices between members in various forms. In this presentation, we will discuss the potential of a CoP in supporting higher education. We presented a case study of the integration of CoP in the User Experience Design Course, where students not only attain competence and skills from lecturers through a university course but also through their interaction with industry experts and alumni networks in the established CoP. We presented a Lesson Learned and a Roadmap of our efforts which hopefully can be helpful for other educators to implement or improves the strategy in their respective case.
