Description : Since aging has become a field of increasing interest, many requests for information on the educational aspects of the subject have been received in the Office of Education. Because of the growing number of these requests, and because so few items bearing on education are included in the reference lists in the general field of aging, this bibliography was prepared. It should service both the broad field of adult education and the growing profession of gerontology. This bibliography is a listing of selected titles bearing directly or indirectly upon educational programs and activities designed for the primary purpose of developing skills, knowledge, habits, or attitudes appropriate and necessary for vital, purposeful living during the years of later maturity. The references are arranged in sections reflecting the influence and research interests of a wide variety of disciplines and specialties within the broad field of aging. The annotations are, for the most part, brief summary descriptions of readily accessible titles and materials which may help the reader to make selections in accordance with his own needs and with those of the older adult participant. The bibliography should be useful to social gerontologists, adult education administrators and teachers, personnel managers and placement officers, industrial training supervisors, vocational and rehabilitation counselors, museum staff personnel, and volunteers who are currently engaged in full- or part-time work with the aging. Further, it should serve the needs of librarians in the development of professional and special collections of materials for use in reading courses, or for use in displays and exhibits in connection with general training conferences, workshops, and institutes. The selected items as they relate to education should: (1) Throw light on the role of professional workers, the lay leader, the aging individual, and the officials and members of community organizations in promoting improved attitudes toward aging and the aged; (2) provide information about surveys and research studies in the field of aging and related fields; and (3) describe a variety of helpful programs which are both meeting various needs of older adults and utilizing their talents and resources for the good of the community and the Nation.

Description : Aging Education provides educators in aging studies with a unique text that responds to the paucity of instructional strategies and teaching materials. Editors Nieli Langer and Terry Tirrito meet the challenge of educating and training students and providers of service to an aging population in all the various instructional programs (gerontology/geriatrics degrees) and non-credit workshops currently offered in different settings (hospitals, nursing homes, professional associations, in-service training, etc). By developing and explaining a multidisciplinary approach to working with older adults in areas related to health, education, ethics, law, cultural competency for a multicultural population, translating social policy into practice, spirituality, and human services, the editors provide an imaginative and thought-provoking unmet need for gerontology educators by providing them with teaching and practice strategies in aging education.

Description : A selection of proceedings from the 2004 Association for Gerontology in Higher Education annual conference Aging Education in a Global Context is a carefully considered set of papers based on selected proceedings from the 2004 Association for Gerontology in Higher Education annual conference. Each forward-thinking presentation provides unique perspectives on teaching resources and education, presenting a wellspring of creative ideas for new and experienced teachers in gerontology and aging education. Respected educators present cutting-edge concepts and effective strategies in gerontology curriculum development and cross-cultural perspectives for advancing gerontology as a field of study. Over the next twenty years, the world's aging population will increase dramatically, requiring increased attention to global aging issues. To prepare gerontologists around the world for future challenges, Aging Education in a Global Context provides educators with fresh viewpoints and practical information on which to base the latest teaching strategies. Each presentation provides a multitude of valuable ideas perfect for incorporating into aging education curriculums, such as how to use films and literature for teaching about aging, how to enfold global perspectives into aging courses, and how to avoid cross-cultural misunderstandings when teaching gerontology in a host country. This invaluable resource is extensively referenced. Aging Education in a Global Context examines aging education, issues, and ageism topics such as: the consequences of globalization for older people a course design incorporating cross-cultural, anthropological approaches to understanding aging an approach to teach about death and dying through the cross-cultural viewpoint of various religious faiths a study of fourteen international films that provides gerontologists with models of successful aging to pass on in coursework teaching cross-cultural aging using Chilean literary portrayals of elders the evolution and present state of gerontology education in Japan gerontology research and cooperative education in Kenya educating about community-based long-term care in China Aging Education in a Global Context presents a wealth of new ideas for all gerontology educators and educators addressing cross-cultural aging issues within discipline-based courses in sociology, social work, anthropology, public policy, and psychology.
