My name is Elaine Stehel and I'm a new Digital Inclusion Fellow at the Salt Lake City Public Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are working on starting a staff pilot of a Learning Circle using the Resume, Networking, and Interview Skills course to teach 10 - 15 of our staff members how to facilitate Learning Circles by participating in a Learning Circle first together.
I plan to facilitate the first (staff) Learning Circle in April, then we hope to promote and implement public pilot Learning Circles at a few of our branch locations in May. We would ideally like to launch 8 simultaneous Learning Circles to be held at each of our branch locations beginning in June, led by the staff facilitators and/or community members who participate in the public pilots in May.
We would like for the 8 June Learning Circles to be tied into our Super Summer Challenge, as a way for adult learners to come together in person to learn & develop new skills!
