New Learning for Older Americans: An Overview of National Effort.
The summary overview of educational and learning-related programs for adults age 62 and over is based on a national study for the Administration on Aging. It contains data on 3,500 programs reported in a 20-item questionnaire survey based upon: subjects of study; methods and location; attitudes and problems; and a wide range of administrative practices. Various methods to sustain this educational movement are suggested and there are detailed data tabulations for the following major providing agencies: formal educational agencies (schools, universities, and colleges); learning-related agencies (cooperative extension services, libraries, museums, and parks and recreation centers); and community organizations (churches, senior centers, employers, and others). An annotated bibliography of 176 items arranged in 22 categories comprises one-third of the document. It is noted that all data from the study, the literature collection, program materials, and other materials from the study are available for study and use by interested persons. (Author/NH)
