Learning Circles

The online delivery of the OpenMed training course starts in October 2017, and it runs through Local Learning Circles.

Learning Circles are groups of learners who meet face to face to collaboratively run the online course and activities. Each Learning Circle is coordinated by one or more Local Facilitators, who are in charge of organising meetings, supporting learners, assessing activities (according to the common assessment rubric), and reporting back to the community.

OpenMed partners have created 8 local Learning Circles in Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Palestine and Lebanon coordinated by Local Facilitators. In October 2017, a new Learning Circles has been created in Lebanon.

Participants from other universities or countries might decide to take part in a Learning Circle at one of the OpenMed universities, or to set-up their own Learning Group.

Each Local Facilitator is committed to make sure that the members of the Local Learning Circle succeed the modules, and the corresponding activities, and work on their own project works.
