Information for Current Study Group Leaders
Study Group Leaders (SGLs) at BOLLI play a special leadership role in the BOLLI community and often forge a strong and rewarding connection with each other. Some SGLs would themselves like to take study groups, either concurrent with their own teaching or in the next term. All SGLs are eligible for discounted membership dues and an exemption from the course assignment lottery. This exemption will ensure that you can take the course or courses of your choosing.
Need help setting up your Zoom account? Please reach out to your Study Group Support Committee Liaison.
For last-minute help using Zoom to conduct your BOLLI class, please don't hesitate to email the program coordinator or call 781-736-2992. Please provide as much information as possible about the issue you are experiencing. We will be back in touch with you promptly.
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 and syllabus by the dates specified in communictions from the BOLLI office. Sample welcome letters are available in your SGL handbook. If you need any assistance contacting your class members, please email the BOLLI Program Coordinator at email@example.com or call 781-736-2992.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-736-2992. Questions about this policy can be directed to Executive Director Avi Bernstein.
The Study Group Support Committee is comprised of BOLLI members who are current or former SGLs, members with educational backgrounds, and/or members who are strongly committed to the BOLLI peer-led community. It is the aim of the BOLLI Study Group Support Committee to help SGLs provide optimal teaching and learning experiences for their course participants. Please visit the SGSC website for more information.
