Does teaching come naturally to you? Do you constantly get asked to tell other people how you do the things that you do? Teaching at Lifelong Learning may be just what you are looking for. A way to promote your craft, educate others looking for skills just like yours, or bring lost arts back in to the mainstream. Almost any topic is fair game, so share it with us.
Lifelong Learning is part of Continuing Education at the University of Utah. We offer noncredit personal enrichment classes for adults in art, crafts, business, food/wine, healthy living, home and garden, language, recreation, writing, and more. Classes vary from a one night food and wine class to a 6 or 8 week language or writing class, and are designed to give students an opportunity to explore/learn something new or to expand existing skills. There are no exams, required homework, or grades. Class length is decided by the instructor and the Lifelong Learning programmer with whom the instructor is working. To see a list of current classes, visit our website at www.lifelong.utah.edu.
Yes! Our instructors are community experts in their subject area; willing to share their passion and knowledge with others. Classes are held once a week on weekday evenings or on Saturdays. Sunday classes are also possible. Instructors are paid $25 per hour and materials costs are reimbursed, plus they have the opportunity to take as many Lifelong Learning classes as they wish, on a space-available basis, during the term in which they are teaching.
Lifelong Learning students are inquisitive, well-educated adults in every age group that enjoy learning and connecting with the community. Classes are held on the main campus and at U of U sites in Sandy, and Murray as well as many other locations throughout the valley.
