The Wichita Public Library is beginning a new program this week that offers online learning in a social, small group setting. The sessions are called Learning Circles, and they’re free. Ten Learning Circles are planned from now through November on topics such as fake news, the art of poetry, superheroes and how to make a website. The idea is to get a group of 10-15 people together to take an online course and talk about it along the way to completion. Library Director Cynthia Berner says this shared experience keeps people motivated to actually finish an online class. “The curriculum has been vetted. It comes from experts,” Berner says. “What the library will be doing is bringing a facilitator to the Learning Circle and our staff will actually be learning together right with the other participants.”
