Learning Circles are a model of blended learning designed to support participants in completing online courses. A unique feature of Learning Circles is the peer-to-peer support that participants experience in working together and sharing ideas. With the help of a facilitator, the group will engage in discussion of learning goals, course content and application of knowledge and skills. Members of a learning circle meet weekly for two hours to work on their course online, in person.
