Study Leader Information

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

E-mail osher@dartmouth.edu for information!

  • 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!

Study leaders

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.
