DavidsonLearns Course Proposal Form
seeks to enhance the intellectual life of adults by providing a selection of challenging, diverse and relevant courses and, in so doing, form a community of learners. It is our belief that educational experiences provide a common ground where people come together with shared goals, expectations and vulnerabilities. Our volunteer instructors are motivated by their desire to share their knowledge and facilitate thoughtful discussions on academic topics. Instructors should feel free to propose courses in which they alone are leading the classes and courses in which they organize a series of guest speakers or panelists.
If you'd like to propose a course, you may either fill in our online form below or click
