(In case you're new to the newsletter: Hi! We’re P2PU, a grassroots nonprofit focused on creating equitable, high-quality alternatives to higher education in public spaces like libraries. Read more about us and our values here.)
Starting this month, we're making two big changes to how we stay in touch with the P2PU community:
First, we're kicking off our new monthly community events schedule. We're hosting 3 regular virtual meetings open to the public: an open forum to discuss topics relevant to learning circles and the community, a facilitator call focused on facilitation practices and experiences, and a user experience (UX) working group to collect feedback and input on P2PU's existing tools and upcoming features.
Second, we're combining our newsletters. For years, we’ve had two distinct mailing lists: a twice-yearly newsletter sent to those who sign up for it on our website (that’s you!) and an every-6th-weekly stats digest sent to those with P2PU accounts. Our aim is to combine these into one monthly overview of stories from learning groups around the world and improvements to the tools that support them.
We hope these systems will evolve as we go, and we welcome your feedback and ideas about how we can best support the work in your communities. Hope to see you soon!
