I highly recommend talking to Aaron Schaap about the Colearning program
he's been running for several years now:
A ways back gave my $0.02 on an episode of my coworking Q&A show about
learning & coworking
I personally think that classes and bootcamps and even co-learning are
really barely the tip of the iceberg. What I really want to see more of is
a re-focusing on apprenticeship models, of which I think coworking spaces
are uniquely positioned to create better than almost any other modern.
*The #1 mistake in community building is doing it by yourself.*
