Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Teach for OLLI at UNCW!

Come share your passion, research and expertise--- teach with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UNCW!  OLLI at UNCW is a university-led, member-supported organization that provides learning opportunities for adults aged 50 and older in the southeastern North Carolina region. OLLI at UNCW serves the region through educational and experiential programming, connecting the adult and university communities. OLLI at UNCW currently serves nearly 1,000 community members in accessing hundreds of high quality educational programs. Your service to the OLLI at UNCW community of “lifelong learners” is needed and greatly appreciated.

We welcome your course proposals for courses in the humanities, arts, and sciences. Whatever your specialty or area of interest, we are here to connect you with learners in the area who eagerly want to learn from you. You may want to give a one-time presentation at a “lunch and learn” or take a couple of hours to share your current research with a special interest group. If you teach a longer course (2 – 6 weeks), OLLI provides a modest honorarium. This is a small thank you for your much appreciated contribution in providing a valuable learning experience for our community members.

Please note, OLLI at UNCW courses are non-credit, enrichment programs; OLLI at UNCW does not offer programming in workplace skills or professional development. Typical classes do not have homework, tests, or grades. Our lifelong learners enjoy learning “just for the love of learning”. They are enthusiastic students, with rich backgrounds and life experiences, eager to connect with you at a deeper level.

We are currently planning courses and programs for spring and fall semesters. We encourage you to consider teaching with OLLI. If you are interested in submitting a proposal to teach with OLLI, please enter your course idea into the brief form at  http://www.uncw.edu/olli/courses.html

If you have questions or would like to discuss your ideas with OLLI staff, please contact OLLI Program Coordinator Amy Keith at (910) 962-4034 or keithaw@uncw.edu
