Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Course Proposal

slide_standardsThank you for your interest in teaching a course at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Ringling College (OLLI). Your proposal will be submitted to the Curriculum Committee for consideration. The Curriculum Committee is comprised of OLLI staff and volunteers, who are each responsible for various topic areas. The criteria for selection of courses includes: anticipated student interest, balance with other course offerings, Instructor qualifications, and a fit within the constraints of scheduling, space and finances. First-time Instructors will be contacted by a member of the Curriculum Committee to schedule an interview. The benefits of being an OLLI Instructor are:

  • A stipend of $25 per session ($200 for an eight-week class; $150 for a six-week class, etc.);
  • Free courses for you (and your significant other) for one year, starting in the quarter in which you’re teaching, on a space-available basis;
  • Free copying of handout materials as needed for your classes;
  • And, the satisfaction of sharing your knowledge with eager adult learners!
