Eldercollege 1978/79.
Hiemstra, Roger; Brown, Victor H.
This document describes the development of the Eldercollege program at Iowa State University and the demonstration program in spring 1979 and also contains various program materials as appendixes. The narrative portion begins by focusing on the assessment of college-level education needs for older and retired persons in central Iowa, one of the initial steps in the planning and programming of Eldercollege. A second section describes the spring 1979 demonstration program which offered the course Foreign Cultures, and two topical forums--Elder-assemblies--in which older and retired persons received college-level instruction and discussed topics of mutual interest and concern. Other brief sections concern external and internal funding of the program, graduate student involvement, and conclusions and recommendations. Appendixes, amounting to over two-thirds of the document, include (1) a Proposal to Develop "Eldercollege": Credit and Non-Credit College-Level Learning Opportunities for Older Adults, (2) plan of work and funding documents, (3) opinionnaire and cover letter, (4) opinionnaire data, (5) registration form, (6) syllabus for course in Foreign Cultures, and (7) Eldercollege Evaluation (form and resuls) by students in Foreign Culture course.
