STUDY LEADER RESOURCES
Thank you for your interest in becoming a study leader! We are extremely interested to read your proposal for a new course or lecture. Once the Curriculum Committee has reviewed and acted on your proposal, you will be contacted by a member of the committee. Thank you again for your interest in leading an AIL course!
On this page, you will find several resources for aspiring and current study leaders:
Course Proposal Form
To submit the standard course proposal, click here to download the form as a Word document. You will be able to fill out the form on your computer, save it and then submit it as an attachment via e-mail or, if you prefer, you can submit a hard copy. Instructions for submission are on the form.
If your course will require a text, please download the textbook form here. This requires that Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed on your computer. If you cannot open this form, click here to download a free version of the software.
Lecture Series Proposal Form
To submit the lecture series proposal, click here to download the form as a Word document. You will be able to fill out the form on your computer, save it and then submit it as an attachment via e-mail or, if you prefer, you can submit a hard copy. Instructions for submission are on the form.
Study Leader Guide
The Study Leader's Guide is intended as a guide rather than as a rulebook for potential and current study leaders. Included in the guide is information on proposing a study course, preparing for your course, and conducting a study course. Download a pdf version of the guide here.
Study Leader Fair Use Checklist for Copyrighted Materials
This form is designed to help study leaders evaluate their planned usage of copyrighted materials. Study leaders must complete the form and return it, along with the master copy of the material for bound copies, to the Adventures in Learning Office where it will be kept on file as a way to establish “reasonable and good-faith” attempts to apply fair use. Download the form here.
Study Leader Self-Evaluation Form
At the conclusion of each course, study leaders are asked to complete and submit a self-evaluation form. Download the form here. Study leaders are encouraged to add written comments to their evaluations. All responses are helpful as the study group leaders and the Curriculum Committee plan future courses. Please submit the completed self-evaluation form to your class representative or to the Adventures in Learning Office.
