Learning Circles

Learning circles are free study groups for people who want to take online classes together and in-person.

Working with Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) between 2017-2020, I introduced learning circles programs to public libraries through designing and facilitating in-person and online training workshops to public library systems across the world, notably in USA, Canada, Germany, and Kenya.

Learning circles have spread to cities in Germany. Here I am running learning circle facilitator training for library staff from the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin team in Berlin, Germany.
I worked with Electronic Information for Libraries and the Kenya National Library Service to train library staff in Kampala, Uganda to implement learning circles. You can read more about this initiative here.
