Introduction to Teaching at OLLI at Southern Oregon University Course

In April 2024, OLLI will hold a course dedicated to learning more about teaching at OLLI. Participants do not need to be a member of OLLI to participate in the course.

The course is not required in order to teach at OLLI, but it will provide a lot of information that will be helpful in creating your OLLI course and completing your first course proposal form.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to teach an OLLI course yourself? This three-session course is designed to answer that question and to help you prepare a course. We’ll talk about OLLI demographics and the OLLI learner. You’ll hear from experienced instructors about teaching online and in the classroom, and the art of lecturing and leading discussions. Seasoned instructors will also help you with your own course design during the final session. This course will be led by the OLLI Curriculum Committee and will include some distinguished guests. Join us to see how your dedication to lifelong learning can include the creative endeavor of course design and teaching. Join us to learn how sharing your passion can bring joy to yourself and others.

The facilitators of this course are the co-chairs of the Curriculum Committee, Ginny Blankinship and Anne Coleman. Support for teaching this course also comes from committee members who specialize in technology or a specific curriculum area. Many of these are also OLLI instructors who love sharing their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm with OLLI members, and who look forward to sharing their teaching experience as well.

Date & Time:

May 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
