Learning Communities

Learning communities are unique and individualized groups formed - both online and off - to explore and express their interests, discover new information and resources, and network with people around shared goals and interests.

Members of a learning community gather to develop a shared repertoire of resources: experiences, stories, tools, and ways of addressing recurring problems. It is the intention that PERC online learning communities provide a closer connection between learning and doing by providing a structure for continued learning development, expert support, peer connections, and knowledge repositories.
