Hi all, this may be a bit off-topic, but I'm interested in investigating whether or not the co-working business model could be replicated for co-learning. I understand many co-working spaces have educational programming, and I have paid attention to WeWork's recent acquisitions of FlatIron and 2U, but I'm curious about the prospect of creating spaces (co-learning, as well as co-living, perhaps) designed primarily for non-traditional learners - who study online, enroll in coding bootcamps, etc. As a Higher Ed consultant and innovator, it's becoming clearer and clearer that the university will "unbundle" - students will take a course here, and do a bootcamp there - but ultimately, people still want a space to congregate, to have in-person instruction, to forge deep bonds, etc.
I've worked for a couple years at Duet <http://duet.org/> in Boston, which rents space from the CIC <https://cic.com/boston/>, so I've seen it work, but I'm curious to hear people's thoughts on the idea. Who else is trying it? What might be some unanticipated obstacles? Who should I talk to? Would love to hear people's thoughts!
