In this chapter, we explore a developing model for scaffolding and supporting professional development for higher education lecturers via mobile social media. The framework involves the establishment of communities of practice comprised of lecturers and mobile learning researchers exploring the potential of mobile social media to enable new pedagogical strategies. We identify three key elements of the framework illustrated by two case studies: modelling a community of practice, redefining pedagogy and designing an appropriate technology support infrastructure.
