What is ILR?
The Institute For Learning In Retirement (ILR) is an organization formed in 2005 by a group of SaddleBrooke residents to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for all the residents of SaddleBrooke. No tests, no grades, no papers - just a group of people getting together to learn something new. ILR course leaders are SaddleBrooke residents who have knowledge or expertise in certain areas and a desire to share that knowledge with others. The ILR is subscriber-driven and is dedicated to providing an environment that leads to lively discussion and interaction on topics of interest to its subscribers.
The ILR offers two sessions of courses each year: one in the fall, and one in winter/spring. Courses usually last 5 or 6 weeks, depending on the topic, and meet once a week for 2 hours. This allows ample opportunity for discussion and interaction among the participants. The quality, scope and presentation of each course are directed by the ILR Board of Directors. A wide variety of topics is presented in an attempt to cover many areas of interest to residents.
After paying a one-time fee of $25, subscribers can enroll in as many individual courses as are offered, for a very modest fee per course (typically $15) to cover the cost of materials and audio-visual aids.
