For those who don’t know me, my name is Alexis Burns and I am the Learning Circles Coordinator VISTA at the Kansas City Public Library. I recently accepted a new position that focuses more on program awareness and marketing.
To increase interest and promote the empowering and inclusive nature of Learning Circles, the marketing team here at the library has decided to come up with an alternative name. We threw around ideas like “Study Swap,” and “DIY Learning.” This is still a work in progress, and I noted to them that I wanted to reach out to the community for input before we decide.
If I remember correctly, this discussion came up before, but in our old community forum. I am interested to see what other names there are for Learning Circles around the world.
So, my question for the community: does anyone have experience using a different title for this learning format? Especially to other library employees- did this change anything? Did it make a difference in interest or attendance?
Thank you in advance for your input!
