Classroom Technology Training
If you plan to use the laptop, projector, DVD player or other technology, you will need to attend a technology training, offered on August 15 at 9:30am or September 13 at 11:00am, or by appointment. Please click here to sign up for a technology training. For an individual training appointment, please contact Megan Curtis at mcurtis@brandeis.edu.

Welcome Letter and Syllabus
A gentle reminder: the members of your class will be expecting to hear from you before the start of term. Please plan to send a welcome email with syllabus by September 15 if you are teaching a 10 week or 5a course. Sample welcome letters are available in your SGL handbook. If you need any assistance contacting your class members, please contact Megan Curtis, who will be happy to help.

Here are some important dates to bear in mind as you plan for your study group:

  • August 9 - Members receive initial course assignments by email
  • August 21 - SGLs will receive their initial class lists from the BOLLI Office
  • September 15- Deadline by which you should send a welcome email to your class list
  • September 21 - Final class lists sent to SGLs 

Registration Policy
Some of you may hear from students who would like you to enroll them in your class, even though your class is full. Here's the good news: you have no responsibility for the BOLLI registration process.  The BOLLI office manages all course assignment decisions, a process that we work hard to make fair by means of a lottery and wait list system. Please direct students interested in joining your class to Megan Curtis (mcurtis@brandeis.edu or 781-736-2175).  Questions about this policy can be directed to me at abernstein@brandeis.edu.
