"ASSOCIATION FOR EDUCATION AND AGING" PROGRAM
"Promoting later life learning through research, policy and practice."
The "Association for Education and Aging" was started by a group of educators in the United Kingdom's higher education departments.
The focus of the "Association for Education and Aging" is to promote:
-Older adults engaging in life-long learning, education and activities.
-The education and training of life-long learning teaching professionals and volunteers who work with older people.
-Public awareness and education about the aging process.
-Advocate for and listen to older adult learners by supporting and promoting their interests.
The "Association for Education and Aging's" quarterly newsletter provides help, advice and support for life-long learning educators, professionals and senior service providers who engage with older adult learners.
