A Model for Learning Resource Networks for Senior Adults
Induction Class Year
One way to combat the national tendency to ignore and neglect senior adults is to develop educational programs that specifically assist them in meeting their needs and expanding their interests. Thus, a model for learning resource networks is being proposed that (1) involves senior adults as resource people and permits them to plan their own educational programs, (2) takes advantage of their previous experience and knowledge, (3) assists them in better utilizing existing learning resources, (4) does not lock senior adults into a fixed time schedule or location, and (5) allows senior adults to pursue their interests.
