O'Connor, Darlene M.
Educational Gerontology, v13 n6 p511-19 1987
Examined the learning goals of older adult students. Found elders more likely than middle-aged students to consider "learning for its own sake" (i.e., expressive goals, as opposed to instrumental goals) their most important reason for enrolling in college-level programs. (Author/KS)
