Become an Instructor

People become instructors for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Western Michigan University for a number of reasons. Perhaps they were once teachers or professors and miss being in front of the classroom. Or maybe they have had an interesting career or family life and want to share some of what they know with the community. Whatever the reason, the Institute is always interested in new instructors bringing new learning opportunities.

To become an instructor, simply fill out the online Course Proposal Form below. The form requires information about you, about the content of the course you’d like to teach, and operational details about the course (recommended class size, location, room requirements, etc.).

Note: The form must be completely filled out before you submit, and you cannot save a partially completed form for later use. Please review the form before you begin to fill it out to ensure that you have all appropriate information at hand.
