“ Participating in the UCR Osher Program brought me the expected excitement of learning new information, and the unexpected opportunities to go to new places and make many new friends.” —  Karen Kane, UCR Osher member since 2014 “I regard Osher as an opportunity to continue a lifetime of teaching that has brought me immense personal satisfaction over the years. I aim to share with students the insights and knowledge I have acquired during my studies of European and World History. In turn, Osher students enrich my life by being the most eager, receptive, and appreciative learners that it has ever been my pleasure to teach.” —  Irwin Wall, UCR Osher instructor since 2017 Program information (951) 827-7139  www.extension.ucr.edu/osher 10 LIFE Lecture Series All lectures held at the UCR Extension Center 1200 University Ave, Riverside OSHER LIFELONG LEARNING INSTITUTE  |  UCR EXTENSION  |  SPRING 2019 Osher LIFE Lecture Series SPEAKER SCHEDULE APRIL The California School of the Deaf April 9  ·  Tuesday 1:30 – 3 pm Development, curriculum, student body and teaching methods.
