College Teaching, v40 n3 p114-17 Sum 1992
A study of nontraditional college students' attitudes identified specific challenges faced in teaching intergenerational groups: discomfort of older students; different orientations toward the professor; older students' role as authorities; differing learning styles; hostility between age groups. Teaching strategies encouraging personal contact, acknowledging differences, and emphasizing commonalities are recommended. (MSE)
