Résumé :

Aging Education: Teaching and Practice Strategies is a text that attempts to meet the challenges of providing a teaching tool for the adult educator who teachers and trains students and care providers of the 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.). Instruction is the best means for bringing about changes in the way we improve provision and distribution of services to the elderly. Educators need to clearly specify the outcomes or objectives they intend their instruction to accomplish and select and arrange learning experiences that will enhance realization of these objectives. Gerontology instructors and trainers can adapt the methodologies and learning experiences provided in the text to revise stereotypical attitudes, update skills, and gain current information about specific topics in the field of aging studies.
