The week marks the end of the first round of Learning Circles, and we’re delighted to announce that it is graduation week for the first-ever cohort of participants.
For the last 6 weeks, P2PU and Chicago Public Library have been running Learning Circles, where participants meet face-to-face in libraries to work through online courses together, in two CPL branches in Chicago. Participants have worked through an Intro to Python coding course, GED Prep Math, Academic Writing and Public Speaking courses designed to help develop relevant, useful new skills and empower in a supportive peer to peer environment.
We’ll be sharing some of the participants experiences and thoughts with you over the next few days, as well as news about the next round of Learning Circles and information on how to get involved.
Congratulations to all the participants – you are the very first Learning Circle alumni, and we’re proud to be associated with you.
