I highly recommend talking to Aaron Schaap about the Colearning program he's been running for several years now:
http://workthefactory.com/colearning/ <https://mltrk.io/link/http%3A%2F%2Fworkthefactory.com%2Fcolearning%2F/z539yXQ79jwwTIRUFpQX> A ways back gave my $0.02 on an episode of my coworking Q&A show about alternative learning & coworking <https://mltrk.io/link/http%3A%2F%2Flisten.coworkingweekly.com%2F784c617f/z539yXQ79jwwTIRUFpQX>. 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. -Alex ------------------ *The #1 mistake in community building is doing it by yourself.* Better Coworkers: http://indyhall.org Weekly Coworking Tips: http://coworkingweekly.com My Audiobook: https://theindyhallway.com/ten On Sat, Apr 14, 2018 at 7:24 PM, Jake Weissbourd <jakeweissbo...@gmail.com> wrote: > 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.
