Learning Circle Facilitator: Introduction to C++
4 people are interested
Learning Circles are lightly-facilitated study groups for learners who want to take free online courses together, in-person. Online learning courses have been available for decades but about 80% of participants quit before completing them. By facilitating a Learning Circle you can create an open, collaborative learning environment that has the the potential to be the support system many learners need. You do not need expert knowledge to facilitate a learning circle, you can learn along with the rest of the group!
The library will provide a space, computers with internet access, and other resources to support each learner's needs.
East San José Carnegie branch library will be piloting their first Learning Circle in January 2019 with an Introduction to C++ course. You do not need to have prior computer programming experience, just a willingness to learn and help others learn, as well!
