Study Circle Leader 1

Become a leader

Leading a study circle is different from teaching. In principle, anybody can lead a study circle as long as they care about the topic and about the people in the circle.

How to do it

Yet, some training helps, and in Study Circle Leader 1, we walk through the best practices of leading a study circle and you get to lead a circle yourself. Study circles are democratic and the leader is there to learn as well.

Be a Swedish peasant!

Study circles were first invented in Sweden in 1902, and they spread like a wildfire across Sweden in the following decades. Workers and peasants were hungry for knowledge and they self-organized and self-led the circles. So, become a Swedish peasant!
