Learning Circles are a way for people to come together to take top online courses in an environment that allows you to ask questions and discuss with fellow learners. Participants come together to watch web-based video tutorials, and then are led by a facilitator in discussion and activities. Learning Circles combine the best of online and in-person learning.
Space is limited. Please register below at least one week in advance so that the facilitator may contact you prior to the first session to go over the syllabus and ensure that necessary equipment will be available.
