Learn locally through Study Groups.
When you have signed up to a Learning Site you will be organised into local Study Groups to learn together, discuss, and share ideas along the way between conference days. Study groups can be small groups or home groups in your local church, or staff teams or just a group of friends who want to study together. Study Groups can be made up of students studying on other courses who want to do Porterbrook Learning to supplement their learning.
Study Groups can run however you like. You can meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. A Study Group could be as informal as a reading group in a pub or could be run as a formal class. The aim is to encourage learning together in your context. The group will then attend the Learning Site conference days with other Study Groups, collect the new term’s materials and share assignments. Attending and forming a Study Group allows you the local flexibility to shape learning as you would like or build the course into your current programs and structures, and it allows the network to create better curriculum and find ways of serving you locally.
Through Learning Sites and Study Groups attached to Learning Sites, students will be able to learn from practitioners and live out the teaching in their local context.
