Hyper Meta is a series of Hyperlink-hosted events, exploring courses, learning clubs & other experiments.
We’re starting with a week of free events, from June 7–11.
Get to know the Hyperlink founding team, meet other creators, and workshop your ideas for courses and clubs.
Oh, and be among the first to test out Hyperspace, our new collaborative learning environment. A space for shared learning, digital gardening, and doing things together.
Please join any or all of the events; they’re free and open to the public. However, to help us prepare, please only RSVP if you’re sure you can make it!
Explore how you can start a learning club — emergent and collaborative p2p cohorts — and how we might experiment together with new forms for peer-driven learning.
Brendan and Adam will host, joined by several others who have hosted awesome clubs ranging from writing to language learning to comics creation.
Monday, June 7, FREE
Workshop your course idea together, in a condensed version of the first week of our Meta Course. We’ll start with a rough idea, plot goals and construct a concept map, and start to plan a potential course structure.
Hosted by Brendan and Celine. After, we can set you up with a draft course and talk further about launching a course on Hyperlink!
Tuesday, June 8, FREE
Let’s talk about book clubs — how to start them, how to run them, and how we can experiment with future book club possibilities.

Wednesday, June 9, FREE
