Older people and lifelong learning: choices and experiences (2000 - 2002)

Dr. Alex Withnall (University of Warwick)
Ms. Victoria Thompson (University of Warwick)

Project Summary

 

Little is known about older people's experiences of learning and education over the course of their lives, the factors that might affect whether they choose to learn in retirement and what role learning plays in their lives as they grow older. This research set out to explore these issues in depth using a range of different investigative methods including the use of a small group of older people themselves as interviewers of their peers.
