I will conduct a Lunch & Learn on Learning in Late Life at Noon on Tuesday, March 18th in the SOWK Student Lounge, Ross Hall room 409.
What we will discuss: How do educational experiences for the Social Security set differ from those for the middle aged and younger?Â What are their goals?Â Are they after learning or just entertainment by another name?Â What does a learning program designed specifically for seniors look like?
To help answer those questions I have invited Ms. Ann Leek, the Director of LifeQuest, a program of learning experiences for seniors conducted at 2nd Presbyterian Church in West Little Rock, to join me. LifeQuest is a program of 8-week courses offered several times a year for seniors on any of innumerable of topics of interest to that age group. Anything from a slide tour of the Holy Land, to Women in the Civil War, to How to live to be 100, to gardening, to name just a few. Ms. Leek will describe the program in detail and answer questions.
So come join us at Noon on Tuesday the 18th. Bring your lunch (or just a snack) and a drink if you wish.
