Call for Faculty Course Proposals – Winter 2014
The Lifelong Learning
Society of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton (LLS) seeks applications
for course and program proposals for Winter 2014. Our
Winter 2014 term begins Monday, January 6, 2014. We
encourage faculty in all range of disciplines to consider submitting proposals
either a full eight (8) or four
(4)-week session beginning on Monday, January 6, 2014.
We are especially seeking course proposals
in the following disciplines: economics, current affairs, history, art,
science, literature and cultural studies. A limited number of series
will be designated for faculty who are new at LLS. You can propose a four-week
course or a full eight-week session. Occasional two hour one-time events are also encouraged.
LLS series/events generally
meet once each week for 1 and ¾ hours; faculty compensation
is based on student enrollment numbers.
Most LLS programs are held in
the comfortable 500-seat Barry and Florence Friedberg Auditorium.
Faculty, drawn from the FAU academic
community as well as from the extended academic and Boca Raton community,
are expert lecturers who have a passion and talent for conveying subject
matter in an interesting and intellectually engaging way to non-traditional
adult learners, most of whom are college or post-college graduates. While
not required, faculty are strongly encouraged to supplement lectures by
using visuals such as PowerPoint slides or other media.
