Teaching a Course – TSC welcome anyone who would like to offer a course. Generally, this is restricted to people over 50 years of age but exceptions can certainly be made. The only compensation offered to an instructor is a free membership if that person teaches a course of 4 or more classes. If you would like to volunteer to teach, you can contact either a Regional Committee or the Coordinator.
Coordinating a Course – sometimes a course is made up of several different topics in a related field and each presenter only instructs one class in a series. The Course Coordinator brings together all the presenters, completes the curriculum course form and gets it to the Regional Committee and the Coordinator. The only compensation offered to a Course Coordinator is a free membership if that person arranges a course of 4 or more classes.
