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?¬† What are their goals?¬† Are they after learning or just entertainment by another name?¬† 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.
