Merrill, Henry S.
Adult Learning, v23 n3 p153-155 Aug 2012
This article shares a reframing of lifelong learning beyond a formal career. Like many of his peers, after 40 years in postsecondary education, the author has moved beyond his most recent full-time work teaching in an adult education graduate program to emeritus faculty status. In this article, he shares his experience moving into the next phase of his career and examines his own future.
