Nairobi, Kenya
A group of learners holding certificates.
Successful Learning Circles learners receive certificates on completion of their courses at Nakuru Public Library in March 2017.

Thirty-one Librarians from 15 public libraries in Kenya will attend a workshop to reflect on outcomes of the pilot phase of the Learning Circles project and to expand the project to libraries across Kenya by introducing new librarians to Learning Circles.

During the pilot phase, Learning Circles were successfully tested in two public libraries in the Kenya National Library Service (KNLS) network. Learning Circles are lightly-facilitated study groups for people who want to take free online courses together and who want to meet other learners in person. The model was developed and tested in the USA by the non-governmental agency, Peer to Peer University (P2PU), and Chicago Public Library in 2015.

Partners in the pilot phase were EIFL, KNLS and P2PU. Janet Sawaya, EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme Advisor for Initiatives in Africa, will attend the the workshop.
