Facilitating Learning with Older Adults.
Garvey, Dennis; Garvey, Daniel
Journal of Experiential Education, v20 n2 p86-93 Aug-Sep 1997
Discusses implications of the aging U.S. population for the adventure education field. Examines bias against older people and how this bias can hinder the facilitation of learning. Suggests that experiential programs allow older clients to explain who they are, to coframe ("front-load") activities, to create their own metaphoric links, and to assist with facilitation. (SV)
