We are driven by three core values:

Peer learning

Underlying all our work is the understanding that learning is a social activity. We believe that everybody is an expert in something, that sharing and connecting is how we learn best, and that feedback is necessary in order to improve.


P2PU began as a community-centered project, which is reflected across our organization through our volunteer network and governance model. By involving learners and collaborators in all stages of the design and delivery of our work, we foster networks of learners and facilitators, and contribute to the crucial role that informal learning plays in local communities.


Openness enables participation, replication, and accountability. We strive to use openly-licensed learning materials and always share our methodology and resources openly, so that as many people as possible can take leverage our work.
