Faculties of Education in Traditional Universities and Universities of the Third Age: A Partnership Model in Gerontagogy
Lemieux, Andre; Boutin, Gerald; Riendeau, Jean
Higher Education in Europe, v32 n2-3 p151-161 Oct 2007
This article discusses "Universities of the Third Age", whose function is quite distinct from established universities' traditional role in teaching, research, and community services. Consequently, there is an urgent need to develop a model of partnership between traditional universities and Universities of the Third Age, ensuring better training for educators working with senior citizens. Determining the roles of teachers, supervisors, and students will facilitate greater cooperation, and allow for a linkage of Universities of the Third Age (U3A) with traditional faculties of education, as well as further refinement of the theoretical and practical professional training of future educators of older people.
