An Experiential Learning Theory Based Study to Enhance Retirement Literacy Education Delivery: Introducing the Retirement Learning Cycle
Timura, Timothy Joseph
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Pennsylvania
In today's self-directed marketplace, individuals are responsible for making their own complex decisions regarding retirement. Seeking counsel, many turn to professionals for advice or education or both. The evidence however, suggests that these interactions often fail to deliver on the goals of improved knowledge, satisfaction, or behavior. Because experiential based approaches have enhanced learning in other disciplines, this dissertation seeks to discern whether a positive link between experiential learning--focusing on the retirement educator and her instructional approach--and retirement education exists. Pursuant of enhanced learning events, professionals who employ experiential learning theory and teach around the cycle, adopting varying educator roles and their respective learning tools and techniques, appear to aid their clients in making welfare enhancing retirement decisions.
