The Outlandish Academy is based around the idea of small study groups - a group of people working together and sharing research and learning on a particular topic. Other names for such groups are pods, learning pods, cells, or happenings.
There is an extensive history of this form of research and group learning - in particular the idea of a Study Circle as practiced in Sweden and other countries.
