for LLS Program Proposals – Spring 2017
The Lifelong Learning Society of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton (LLS) seeks applications for series and program proposals for Spring 2017. Our Spring 2017 term begins in early March. We encourage presenters in all range of disciplines to consider submitting proposals for either a four(4)-week series, an eight(8)-week series and/or One-Time Events.
are especially seeking series 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 either a four-week
session or an eight week session. Occasional
two hour one-time events may also be scheduled.
LLS series/events generally
meet once each week for ninety (90) minutes; 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, many of whom are college or post-college graduates. While
not required, presenters are strongly encouraged to supplement lectures by
using visuals such as PowerPoint slides or other media.
