TEACHING FOR OLLI
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all OLLI classes are currently being held online using the Zoom platform until in-person gatherings are allowed and safe again. OLLI provides training and support to all instructors on using the Zoom platform, and a staff member or volunteer will be on hand for all class sessions to assist as needed. For more information call 413.236.2192.
at BCC is a volunteer-run program, and all of our instructors are
volunteers who love sharing their knowledge and insight with our
members. In gratitude for their generosity, each instructor receives one
free course for themselves or a friend or family member, an OLLI
notebook, and an invitation to our annual Faculty Appreciation Party.
If you are interested in teaching a course for OLLI, we would be delighted to hear from you! Please download and fill in the instructor form below and email it as an attachment to our Executive Director, Megan Whilden, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OLLI at BCC offers five semesters of courses each year, with the majority of classes offered weekly for four to six weeks. The semesters are:
- Winter: mid January to late February
- Spring: mid April to late May
- Summer/June: the month of June
- NEW! Second Summer: mid July through late August
- Fall: mid September to late October
We have four curriculum committees that review course proposals and work with instructors. They focus on the Arts, Science, Literature and Social Science. We look forward to hearing from you!
