Abstract: Sociability is conducive to learning effectiveness and efficiency. Sociability does not emerge easily in Learning Networks. This paper argues that so-called ad hoc transient communities will help the emergence of sociability in Learning Networks. Ad hoc transient communities are relatively small, temporal and goal-directed communities that support voluntary, emergent, informal knowledge sharing. The paper examines various theories, management policies and technological prerequisites that underpin their proper functioning. Venues for future research, both conceptual and empirical are discussed.
