Would you like to lead a Learning Clinic? Reach out to us by writing to email@example.com and we can support you to build yours and co-organise the Clinic with you! If you are a grantee-partner you can also talk to your Regional Program Officer about Learning Clinic ideas to share your work! We do everything to fit your needs and interests so we can invent completely new types of Clinics with you!

One-one Matches: Live coffees and teas
The one-one coffees and teas are a great way for a closer connection with a peer to learn or share with them. These connections happen in two ways. 1. Working-group led. When the working group finds a connection and suggests this via email. Keep a look out for your email to see if you receive a connection and make sure you respond in the given time frame so that this conneciton can happen. 2. The even better way! When participants themselves request to connect with someone. Oh, great, and how is this done?
Step 1: Navigate the Skills Directory to find some one that wants to share skills you want to learn, or wants to learn skills that you want to share!
Step 2: Request to connect to this person by clicking "I want to connect to share with this person" or "I want to connect to learn from this person".
Step 3: This will take you to a form where you will explain your interests and needs. This information is important so that Let's Connect Working Group can support you in organising the session and meeting each others expectations in this first connection! 😁
If you have any doubts about how to navigate the Skills Directory have a look at the orientation presentation or video. You can also write to us at Letsconnect@wikimedia.org.
