A Ramsden Circles are a peer-to-peer learning format that connects you with other Fellows who share common problems of practice. As a Circle Fellow, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with other Fellows as you understand, ideate and create solutions that work in your classroom. Reflection, collaboration and risk-taking will be integral elements of these professional learning experiences. All Circles, no matter the topic, share these common elements:
- A fellow(s), who has expertise in the topic, will facilitate your circle as a Lead Fellow
- Circles are centered on your problems of practice.
- Time and structure to work closely with other fellows, both synchronously and asynchronously.
I believe that it is almost impossible for people to change alone. We need to join with others who will push us in our thinking and challenge us to do things we didn't believe ourselves capable of. -Frances Moore Lappe
