Learning, Participation and Choice
Learning in later life can help people gain personal satisfaction, development, fulfilment and also contributes to a sense of well-being. Learning provision should no longer just be a way of passing the time, it must support key measures that contribute to older people's ability to remain independent and active, well into later life. Learning, therefore, should be mainstreamed into the lives of older people.Learning, Participation and Choice: A Guide for Facilitating Older Learners aims to provide an introduction to the context and practice of facilitating learning for older adults. Its purpose is to seed debate about learning and stimulate new ideas and directions. We invite you to explore this resource and take from it inspiration and practical measures for success. In doing so, we hope that you will develop new thoughts and ideas that can be shared with others.
