We are the people who are 'on the ground' in learning and engagement in Scotland. We come from a whole bunch of settings, from zoology to mental health, and provide learning programmes and resources for learning in all its guises.

We are a multidisciplinary, thinking and learning community - the people on the ground in learning and engagement in Scotland, with  many interests and needs based around our work...To meet these needs, we host 1/2 day Mini Learning Journeys, evening meet ups, free 'Excellence Wayfinders' training, and workshops such as 'resources clinics'. See below for descriptions of each event type and examples of previous ones. We host up to three events a month, except during the summer. Have an idea? Want to do something together? Get in touch!


Find our next events via our Eventbrite page.

These are 1/2 day, informal study trips, with:

  • a tour and informal presentation of learning, engagement and/or interpretation at the venue

  • a talk or workshop

  • group Q&A

Mini Learning Journeys

What: free, ongoing training. A cohort of us are using Judging Exhibitions: A Framework for Assessing Excellence (Beverly Serrell 2006). This is a visitor-centered framework to assess how comfortable, engaging, reinforcing and meaningful exhibitions & attractions are. 

Why? For the joy of learning. How: 1. join cohort (click link above) and we'll train you in how to use the framework 3. Visit the group's chosen exhibition/attraction and use framework to structure and deepen your thoughts and 4. meet as a group and discuss.

Excellence Judges

  • peer-to-peer learning  and up-skilling

  • try out ideas, methods and resources 


  • active, reflective thinking sessions


An informal mix of networking, chat and a themed talk or panel, these take place in a pub, with no powerpoint in sight!
