Abstract: The purpose of a learning circle, conversation, or community is to support the movement from individual intelligence to collective wisdom through reflective dialogue about subjects that attract and have meaning for participants. The framework for creating a learning circle includes five areas of attention. They include belief systems, creating an environment, processes, structures, and actions or outcomes that support the development and evolution of a learning conversation.
