The Development of Educational Gerontology in Taiwan: An Interpretive and Critical Perspective
Huang, Chin-Shan
Educational Gerontology, v36 n10-11 p968-987 2010
Educational gerontology is increasingly becoming a global phenomenon. Taiwan, a small island in the western Pacific Ocean, has responded to its aging population with the development of the studies and practices of educational gerontology. This study, first, traces the development of educational gerontology in Taiwan, based on Peterson's definition and perspective of educational gerontology. Second, the researcher identifies the factors that influenced the development of educational gerontology in Taiwan. Finally, further discussion and recommendations regarding the studies and practices of educational gerontology in Taiwan are made in order to facilitate its future development.
