Learning in Retirement and Old Age: an agenda for the 21st century

Sprache: EN

Eingesandt von Eva ALOS MELCHOR

This article is about education and learning for the ‘retired’. The evidence reveals a much more nuanced picture of capability among the retired. Comparisons are drawn with the early childhood sector, which had parallel characteristics but which has since moved rapidly upwards among policy priorities. In conclusion, the article argues that ‘active ageing’ rather than ‘lifelong learning’ represents a more promising embracing framework through which to develop learning in retirement and old age.
