Our Approach

To work effectively, peer learning needs guidance and structure. As when developing a new personal habit at an individual level, a careful process of introduction to the team or organisation is needed, based on their specific requirements and cultures.

We do this by:

  • ‍Designing learning journeys, peer-mentoring systems and skill-sharing events which enable peer learning and exchange. 
  • ‍Facilitating sessions for you and your participants, and providing training and support for rotating facilitation systems within the group. 
  • Drawing on our Living Library, where we have consolidated research findings, methods and frameworks, and practical experiences. 
  • Setting up simple and easy-to-use toolboxes and templates for effective peer-learning formats.
  • Integrating selected methods such as buddy systems or coaching circles into your existing internal and external formats.
  • Co-developing a strategy to embed peer learning into your organisation or network, including linking it to your talent development strategy.
The workshop with Unity Effect with our community managers was great! I was very enthusiastic about the relaxed and open-minded atmosphere created by the speakers. I felt like I was in a safe space and we were able to learn a lot from each other's experiences.

Together with the Unity Effect team, we piloted the ‘Learning Circle’ peer-learning format with very diverse target groups in 2023. Their broad wealth of experience and great reliability and flexibility to adapt to ever-new contexts were hugely enriching, both for us in the collaboration and for the Learning Circle participants.
