Do you have talent, skills, or knowledge to share? Consider teaching for OLLI!
All of our instructors are volunteers. We have many repeat instructors who frequently tell us how wonderful it is to teach people who are so interested in learning and who have such rich life experiences. In addition to our gratitude, instructors who teach a class meeting 3 or more times receive a complimentary membership and free unlimited classes for one term. A typical class meets once a week for 4 weeks for 75 minutes each meeting. Most of our classes meet during the day, but we offer a few early evening classes.
We offer classes in a wide range of subjects. Recent topics have included knitting, drawing, creating podcasts, reading Homer's The Odyssey, knot tying, weight loss, the Korean War, strategy games, chord construction, swing dance, women's suffrage, genetic engineering, and Chinese culture. If you have an idea, talk to us!
To propose a class, fill out the course proposal form or give our office a call. We're happy to walk you through the process.
Do you want to teach for OLLI but you're not quite sure how to organize and run a class? Periodically, OLLI will offer a free class on Becoming an OLLI Instructor. This course will take your from your idea all the way to submitting a course proposal. Develop your ideas and learn about the unique needs of OLLI members, tips from other instructors, and how to work with staff.
