What: All fall courses—4-week and 8-week courses in a variety of subjects—will meet live via Zoom. You will see that many of the spring 2020 selections are back in the lineup with a few new courses added to the mix.

When: Session I (September 14 – October 8) and Session II (October 12 – November 5). Classes will meet Monday through Thursday at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 1 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

How: All courses will meet in real time, online via Zoom. Most class meetings will consist of a live lecture and live Q & A. View Osher's Zoom Attendee Guide (PDF).

Who: Courses are open to current members. Renew your membership before registration opens.

Why: Member safety is our top concern and we want to be sure it is fully safe before we have in-person courses, lectures, and meetings.
