• Facilitator Information

  • OLLI West is always looking for new facilitators!

    Facilitators are the very heart of our OLLI program. OLLI is successful because every term we have an intriguing curriculum and a "faculty" of dedicated people volunteering their time to make it happen.

    If you are interested in finding out more about facilitating at OLLI West, review the guides on this web page and/or contact one of our Curriculum Committee Co-Chairs, Bob Magnani at bobmagnani@comcast.net or Jim Keller at kellerjb10@aol.com.

    A presentation/course proposal form will need to be submitted. Due dates per term for proposal form submission can be found in the Curriculum Calendar in the right column of this web page. Please click on the link below to open the submission form.

  • Using Portfolio to Create Your Own Web Page

    Save Time & Effort!
    Use Portfolio to Provide Class Information!

    Portfolio is  a web based program that allows you to post text, pictures, or class information, links to Internet web pages, documents, or other content that is accessible to class members. It is managed by DU and OLLI facilitators can use to set up a class webpage. It is a tremendous tool that will save you the time and effort from having to email information to your class.
