Educare for the Elderly: Hawaii's Post 60 Students Respond to a Trial Humanities Course.
Cox, Clarice Robinson
In April and May 1974, the Center of Continuing Education and Community Service of the University of Hawaii at Hilo sponsored a course for 41 members of the Hui Aloha senior citizens club. Between 39 and 44 students, ranging in age from 60 to 93, participated in an experimental workshop program which involved four 8-hour tours of colleges and museums, and lectures by artists subsidized by the Artists in Residence Program. While a great deal of information was covered, this noncredit course did not require tests or essays. This document reviews the steps taken to develop the course, describes the physical arrangements, and gives a detailed description of each of the four sessions. Seven recommendations for senior citizen education are given based on the course, and other educational programs for the elderly are briefly surveyed. (NHM)
