Study Leader Information

Want to be an Osher@Dartmouth Study Leader? We're looking for YOU!

The deadline for Winter 2015 course proposals is August 15, 2014.
E-mail osher@dartmouth.edu with your inquiry.

 

Do you have passion for a subject?
Are you interested in leading a course?   
Do you know of someone else that would be interested in teaching?  
Are you enthusiastic about a subject and would love to share it, but aren't sure about teaching? 
Have you considered team teaching?

If you answered yes, to any of these questions, then you are in the right place. 

Osher@Dartmouth is always looking for interesting people who have something interesting to talk about and share with their peers.  Never taught before?  We can help.  Osher@Dartmouth's Study Leader Support Committee will help you frame and prepare your course.

Being a study leader will be one of the most rewarding experiences you will have.  Just ask any one of our present or past instructors.
