Teach a Course

We invite you to volunteer to teach for OLLI at UNT. Many OLLI at UNT faculty are retired professors, but others are active UNT faculty or area professionals who are interested in sharing their expertise and love of a subject with a community of senior learners. You could teach in your area of academic expertise, or you can offer course in subjects of personal interest to you. One of the chief aims of the OLLI program is to provide older adults with intellectually stimulating educational activities that allow them to engage in a substantive way with important ideas and subject matter.  Keeping in line with that mission, we encourage our OLLI at UNT faculty members to consider teaching a multi-session course. Courses can run from one to four 90-minute sessions.
