Older Adults' Motivation to Learn in Higher Education
Lin, Yi-Yin
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Adult Education Research Conference (AERC) (Toronto, Canada, Jun 2011)
A limited amount of literature has discussed older adults in formal education, especially their motivations to learn in higher education. This study aims to understand older adults' learning in the context of higher education. Specifically, this study argues that higher education can function as a stimulating learning environment that helps older adults meet their late-life development needs and can lead them toward a meaningful and positive aging experience.
