Improving Education for Older Adults. Third Leadership Development Institute.
Hendrickson, Andrew; Aker, George F.
The third in a series of institutes for the development and improvement of educational programs for older persons dealt with three basic concepts: (1) the need for educational forms other than the classroom; (2) the use of educational processes in the older years as a continuation of education throughout life, rather than as a separate segment; and (3) the need for inter-institutional cooperation and collaboration. The following subjects were discussed in eleven addresses: pre-retirement planning; vocational training needs of older workers; inter-agency communication and cooperation at the community level; an adult degree program called Bachelor of Independent Studies; education for the aging in Florida's community colleges; and the availability of resource material. Reports from county groups, a program outline, a selected bibliography, and a roster of participants are included in the report. (CL)
