Decade-long Relationship between TBGBC and OLLI-USF Continues to Strengthen
Longtime Tampa Bay Great Books Council member Ken Kotecha has been inducted into the Instructors “Roll of Honor” for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of South Florida. The “Roll of Honor” recognizes those devoted volunteers who have successfully taught more than ten courses in the OLLI-USF program. This testament to the excellence of Ken’s teaching comes from TBGBC Vice Chair Ann Ottaviano, a student in one of Ken’s recent classes.
Last winter I enrolled in an OLLI “Arabs and Africans” course taught by Ken Kotecha. Ken’s teaching encompassed not only the socio/economic but also the political aspects of the subject, making it a very interesting, informative course. I kept all the notes and handouts for future reference.
Ken will be teaching the third part of what I term the “African Trilogy” (unfortunately, I didn’t take the first one) from July 21 – August 11, addressing the ramifications of the scramble by worldwide countries for a place in Africa’s socio/economic/political picture.
I am sure this course will be as informative as the last one, and I encourage all those interested to enroll. It should be a great experience!
