EDUCATION AND LEARNING FOR THE ELDERLY

Learning is an effective way to promote positive adaptation. Besides seniors, professionals and the public are also the target participants of educational gerontology. This course will conduct in a diverse way to show how older adults learn and are educated in formal, informal, and nonformal learning contexts (participatory observation in a senior learning center, a community, and a local hospital). Pairing students and seniors in a community is a core learning for this course. Hope to provide more teaching ways and materials for the coming super-aging society
