Retreads & Reentry: A Unique Career Course for Older Adults.
Bartel, Susan M.
A career development course designed to meet the diverse needs and time considerations of returning adult college students is presented. The first of two sections provides an overview of the unique character of these nontraditional students, including their greater experience and maturity, multiple role demands, and increased commitment to career goals. Section 2 outlines the course's eight 2-hour sessions. For each session, skill and content objectives are listed. Emphasis throughout is on integration of external factors such as stress management and age discrimination with internal factors such as self-confidence and role conflicts. Six recommended assignments are also listed. Concluding recommendations focus on meeting individualized needs and fostering group support within the class. (LP)
