U3A Bermagui publishes a program of courses for the upcoming term each year in February, May, July and October.
The face to face programs are cancelled until further notice but we are offering a range of online courses.
To see the courses on offer and to enrol for an online course, please see our Current Program.
Become a U3A Course Presenter / Leader
We value our Course Presenters / Leaders – they are what makes us work! You may have specialist knowledge in a particular area, such as science, technology, languages, games, arts, crafts, drama, topical issues or philosophy. Or you may simply like to gather people with similar interests together for discussion or a craft such as an art or musical group, sharing ancestor stories, a travel story group, current affairs discussion group. According to the principles of U3A internationally, course presenters may not be reimbursed for their time.
Think about how you would like to present the course: as a one-off session or a weekly or fortnightly class. It is entirely up to the leader as to the content and manner of presentation. You know what comes naturally. There is a lot of satisfaction and joy in sharing your knowledge and being appreciated!
You don’t need any qualifications to teach a course, just enthusiasm or a passion. You can use technology, such as a PowerPoint Presentation or use the chalk and talk method or have a group discussion. U3A Bermagui provides laptop and projector equipment to assist you in the presentation of your course material. If you need professional help, we have former teachers who may be able to offer advice.
The Program Team is the “engine room” of U3A Bermagui and is responsible for creating the classes, courses and excursions each term. Each presenter is assigned a Program Team member and as their personal Liaison Officer will help you to arrange a venue, dates and times and other details as required. Upon request a Course Leader’s Manual will be sent to assist in course preparation and this manual includes tips and tricks to a successful presentation.
Please contact a program team member if you have any questions or would like to offer a class.
