Knowledge, Learning, Community

The offering "Lumen Circles combines an online learning platform with 'facilitated fellowships' that connect faculty with peers to form a virtual community of practice." It's the sort of thing that might be useful - basically a peer-to-peer learning experience. A lot like one of our cMOOCs. "It's not enough simply to adopt a new textbook or learning tool," commented David Wiley, co-founder and chief academic officer of Lumen Learning. "They need more than an occasional webinar or lunch hour workshop. They need opportunities for sustained, evidence-based professional development." Just one catch: the 'fellowships' are $750 per seat.
