The Meanings and Motivations of Learning during the Retirement Transition.
Adair, Suzanne R.; Mowsesian, Richard
Educational Gerontology, v19 n4 p317-30 Jun 1993
Interviews with 7 retired adults over 55 were thematically analyzed and coded, revealing their learning motivations to be either instrumental (meeting survival and personal effectiveness needs) or expressive (meaningful and purposeful). Needs and goals were related to adult developmental themes; learning was essential to increasing individual power and adjusting to retirement. (SK)
