Celebrating 20 Years!

Celebrating 20 Years!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) is a group of more than 1,000 individuals, age 50 and over, who learn together through three distinct programs: OLLI Classes, OLLI Learning Trips, and OLLI Study Groups.

Here, members can discuss what they learned, what they enjoyed, and offer suggestions to enhance future program offerings.

Take a look at the photos we're taking, and the discussions we're having as OLLI members.

Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.

We look forward to reading your comments!

While you're online, be sure to visit our website www.bradley.edu/continue/olli to register for our programs.

Don't forget -- OLLI has its own YouTube Channel, where you can see video clips of Learning Trips, Classes, and Study Groups!

"Let's Think About This" Study Group

Greg Peine, OLLI member and Caterpillar Inc. retiree, facilitated this group from February 16 to March 4. During the meetings, he incorporated several activities to help members identify and discuss the contradictions that can exist between intuition (beliefs) and reality (the state of things as they actually exist).

Focusing on the topics of chance, geometry, and cause-and-effect, the group used coin flipping, dice rolling, cutting and pasting geometric figures, making a mobius strip, building hula hoops, running a class factory, and more to help learn how their intuitions match reality.
