FORT MYERS, FL - The Renaissance Academy at Florida Gulf Coast University seeks instructors to teach courses in its adult lifelong learning program for the fall 2007 and winter/spring 2008 academic terms at any of the Renaissance Academy's 15 locations throughout Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties.

Instructors will offer single lectures and/or short courses in art, business, computer instruction, ecology, environment, government, history, law, life enrichment, literature, music, philosophy, psychology, religion, science, sociology, medicine and U.S. and world affairs.

Lectures are offered Monday through Saturday between 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Each lecture is usually one hour long, with additional time allotted for question and answer sessions.

There are no advanced degree requirements for instructors. The pay is $75 per lecture.

The Renaissance Academy is the University's and region's premier lifelong learning program for adults. It is based on the premise that learning should never cease, that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active fundamentally enriches and invigorates lives. Single lectures, short courses, day trips, computer classes, film series, life enrichment, and travel abroad are some of the programs offered by the Academy. There are no exams or grades, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors and peers.
