Online Submission, US-China Education Review B v3 n6 p459-469 Jun 2013
Dealing with the aging problem has been a global issue. One of the keys to help successful aging is to implement elder education. The government in Taiwan has invested a lot of budget in elder education, but in practice, there are two independent and diversified elder education systems in Taiwan, which had led to a lack of resource integration, in turn, causing duplicity in investment and wastage. The aim of this study is to explore some suitable strategies for resource integration by investigating the organization and implementation of elder education in Taichung. From the results of this study, a total of 23 strategies for the resource integration of elder educational organizations were identified, including mutual support of manpower and material resources, certification of teaching staff, conducting joint classes and setting up a shared Website, and so on. These strategies could be grouped based on the five categories of resources: human, financial, material, knowledge and technical, and marketing. (Contains 7 tables and 2 figures.)
