What is a Peer Learning Community?
A Peer Learning Community (PLC) is an opportunity for a group of people with similar goals, interests, experiences, and jobs to ask questions and share their knowledge, advice, and resources with each other to discover new ideas and ways of doing things in addition to than their own. It is a collaborative way to engage in professional learning to expand knowledge and techniques with support and input from peers.
Groups can meet in person, via teleconference, or through online platforms. PLC’s are not a training or webinar with a presenter and participants. They are interactive and require lively discussion and sharing from participants. Prior to the PLC to help start discussion topics participants can submit discussion questions. PLC’s are best suited for small groups of no more than 15 colleagues and can meet one time or several times depending on the level and amount of content.
