Education for Senior Adults.
Hendrickson, Andrew; Aker, George F.
The major objectives of the Education for Senior Adults Leadership Development Institute were: (1) to give a deeper understanding of the characteristics of senior adults; (2) to give a sense of the richness and variety of activities that could be built into a program for the aging; (3) to provide help in problems of organizing and administering educational programs for the aging; and (4) to motivate participants to use what they learn when they return to their communities. Addresses covered: an overview of education on aging; sociological aspects of aging; recreation's contribution to education of older adults; physiology of aging; the role of the arts in the education of the aging; the place of the church in the continuing education of the aging; what it means to teach older adults; counseling of older adults; a comprehensive and coordinated community approach in planning education program for older persons; and use of the library and other community resources. A general section given on evaluation, emphasizes the relationship between evaluation and goals. This is followed by a copy of three evaluation forms used during the institute and a bibliography.
