Is your OLLI a member of LERN?

Posted on May 4th, 2011 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Connie Hodgson, OLLI at University of North Dakota, Asks OLLI:

Is your OLLI a member of LERN?  And if so, has it worked for you?  Have you attended any of the institutes and/or the annual convention, and were they worth the cost?

  1. We are not a member of LERN.


  2. OLLI@Pacific is part of the Center for Professional & Continuing Education. A number of CPCE staff have attended the conferences, but when they brought the book back, I discovered that LERN is not really appropriate for “Lifelong Learning” as we know it. Hope that helps.
