About This Program

Target Population: Not Specified

Program Overview

The Learning Circle model creates change at the team level that then moves outward to the rest of the agency. Learning Circles are about change that starts at the unit level and flows up. The model is designed to develop a learning culture at the team level to improve practice and agency/team functioning. Teams engage in a problem-solving process informed by multiple sources that results in action plans that address the issues most important to them. Learning Circle topics are chosen by the team, but a specific process guides the Learning Circle model. Instead of decisions being made at the “top” and then handed down to teams for implementation, Learning Circles identify their own issues, make decisions about how to address those issues, and then implement changes.
