This paper attempts to define the current status of 'learning technology' as an emergent area of research. It focuses on the experience of a group of practitioners (the Sudeley group) through a series of seminars and meetings which have been held over the last 18 months and articulates the key characteristics of this group as a 'Community of Practice'. The paper will also reflect briefly on some of the paradoxical implications of the participation of this 'Community of Practice' within the wider 'community of academia'. Specifically, it will reflect on how the practice of 'academia' constrains the publishing options of this community
