ST. PETERSBURG, FL – The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Eckerd College is excited to announce its online, non-credit classes and activities scheduled for Summer 2020 (July-August). In this time of social distancing, learners may participate in classes and social activities in the safety of their own homes.
Designed for people age 50-plus and open to all adult learners across Pinellas County and beyond. Due to the pandemic, classes have moved online, with the goal to return to local sessions as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. The OLLI Summer 2020 brochure presents 31 courses online using the Zoom platform. A sample of the diverse Summer 2020 classes offered include “Broadway Showstoppers,” “Latin America in the 20th century: Democracy and Dictators,” “Climate Change: Effects on Land on Sea Animals,” “American Art: From the Gilded Age to the Jazz Age (1880-1940),” and “The (Largely) Untold History of Violence in Florida”.
OLLI also offers FREE online discussion groups and socials, as well as opportunities to engage with other lifelong learners. A weekly Monday program called “Live: This Week at OLLI” informs members and nonmembers of the many activities and classes scheduled for that week. Experience the many e-classes OLLI has to offer this summer with a new All-Access Class Pass. One Price. One Registration. Unlimited Learning.
