The Ask OLLI blog is a resource for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute administrators to facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to the creation and management of OLLI institutes nationwide.

Entries to the blog are called "posts" and can only be submitted by blog editors. Please contact Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center if you have an article suggestion for the AskOLLI editors.

Each post has a "comment" section where blog subscribers can submit their own remarks and responses to the post. A subscriber must be logged in to comment on a post. A login link is available at the bottom of the right-hand column, as well as at the end of each posting page.

Although the Ask OLLI blog is publicly viewable, commenting is closed to non-subscribers. For more information on Ask OLLI, or if you wish to create a subscriber account please contact Anne Cardale.

Do you have a course evaluation form to share?

Posted on November 21st, 2011 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Jacqueline Gratz, OLLI at Towson University, Asks OLLI:

Do you have a course evaluation form to share? Our curriculum committee is revising its course evaluation form. While we have looked at the examples posted on osher.net, it would be helpful to have additional samples of evaluation forms from other OLLIs.  If you use an evaluation form, and are willing to share it, please email it as an attachment to Kyle Allen at the National Resource Center, kallen@usm.maine.edu, and it will be added to the Institute Management Resources on osher.net.

What criteria does your OLLI use to accept/decline new course proposals?

Sally Klein, OLLI at Southern Oregon University, Asks OLLI:

What criteria does your OLLI use to accept/decline new course proposals? Our Curriculum Committee reviews all new course proposals and is starting to decline some proposals. We are wondering what criteria other OLLIs use for this process.
