Learning circle: evidence & strategies for social cohesion

What is a learning circle? A learning circle is an informal group of people who get together to discuss a subject in which they are interested. It involves sharing resources, knowledge, discussion and experience and is an interactive environment in which to develop skills and ideas that may be useful to our ongoing work.

What will we discuss? Practical strategies for creating social cohesion based on our shared experience and current research evidence. Our first meeting will look more deeply at strategies identified by Karen Larsen–Truong in the seminar Creating Social Cohesion: lessons from the Community 2168 Project (see previous post).

Who should participate? No previous experience is necessary. Anyone from the 2168 area with an interest in building community. You may work in the area or be an interested resident.

When & where? The first meeting will be at The HUB Community Health Centre, 16 Woodward Crescent Miller at 12.30 – 1.30pm on Thursday, July 21.

Please RSVP to Vanessa Rose, Coordinator, Community STaR at v.rose@unsw.edu.au or phone 9612 0779.
