Alternative to “best” practices?

Addendum: See my most recent entry (27 Jun 2015) on this topic.
I find Storify to be a powerful and convenient tool for not just archiving Twitter conversations but also capturing key moments.
I used to have to copy and paste tweet URLs one by one, but the export-to-WordPress tool in Storify makes the process so much easier. I only wish there was a way to not publish immediately from Storify.
This is an initial conversation we are having in #edsg on alternatives to the term “best” practices [Storified version].
What is an alternative to “best” practices? I share a thought at the end of this entry.
I think that “success stories” is not a good alternative because we can learn a lot more from failure than from success. Shying from failure also creates aversion to risk and by extension to innovation.
I might go for “shared experiences”. As in the act of sharing (humbly, honestly, and simply) as well as the attempt to adapt the experiences to other contexts.
