The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at FIU is currently seeking instructors to teach daytime and evening courses and workshops in a wide variety of areas, including art, foreign language, history, current events, international affairs, government and politics, philosophy and the social sciences. Instructors are needed at the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus and at our off-campus meeting location in Miami Shores.
The OLLI at FIU offers instructors an opportunity to teach adult learners who have a passion for learning and a curiosity about many things. At OLLI there are no grades, no credit, no tests--just the pleasure of sharing your knowledge and experience with those who greatly appreciate that gift. These unique students truly appreciate their courses and the expertise of those that teach them.
- Course scheduling is flexible, but typically a course meets once per week for 4 to 6 weeks, 90 minutes to 2 hours per class. You may also choose to offer a single lecture on a compelling topic. Classes are offered days and evenings. OLLI has 4 terms per year: Fall (September - December), Winter (January - March) and Spring/Summer (April - July).
- Preference is strongly given to those who have had significant teaching experience.
- OLLI reserves the right to select or reject courses based on the needs of the program and interests of its members.
- Instructors are paid a contact hour fee, although some generously donate all or a portion of their compensation back to OLLI.
