Thanks to everyone who attended the Facilitator Orientation Call today. If you missed the call here is a link to the agenda with notes.

These Facilitator Orientation calls are meant to a be a brief overview of some of the things we think are important for you to get started with learning circles. While we did address questions with specific links to individual references in the agenda, you can also find answers to questions by looking through our Knowledge Base.

Some highlights from today.

  • Axel from Hamburg University of Technology in Germany shard with the group how he started a learning circle on Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) but could not find any good courses in German. Axelโ€™s Learning circle collectively brainstormed interesting topics about AI and shared resources to make their own learning circle experience. They have since documented and published their learning circle here.

Learning Circles are collective learning experiences for all involved facilitators and participants alike, which makes them more than just another class, and facilitators are not teachers but learners and guides. We encourage you to tailor your learning circle to your community of learners. Here is a link to our facilitator guide template or your can create your own.

Happy facilitating and if you need any additional help you can reach the P2PU team at thepeople@p2pu.org
