An OLLI Shared Interest Group

Shared Interest Group
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) has a new program option known as a Shared Interest Group (SIG). A SIG brings people together who have a common interest that they wish to pursue indefinitely within a structure of meetings and activities designed primarily by the members of the group.

A SIG does not have a formal class syllabus. Members of a SIG determine the content and discussion of a SIG. A designated facilitator arranges meetings, takes attendance, and initiates the discussion among the SIG members on how the group will operate.

Right or wrong? Good or evil? Yes or no? Our own life experiences surely include having to decide between alternative courses of action that may seem equally right. Which one is the best? Is there a moral compass that determines our decisions? Are these decisions more difficult to make in a 21st century world? How might our own values guide us in these decisions?

In this new OLLI Shared Interest Group (SIG) offering we will examine fascinating questions, hypothetical or real, drawn from historical examples, contemporary news, and our own experiences. All participants can expect to contribute to our discussions, and might come away with new insights into human behavior.

Our Ethical Issues SIG will be guided by Beth Kon and Stu Simon. Beth brings years of successful experience overseeing SIGs in the Chicago area. Stu has led the popular OLLI seminar on Group Facilitation and is the current chair of the OLLI Study Group Committee.

This Shared Interest Group will meet on the first Wednesday of every month.
