Introduction to the Geragogy Guidelines (by C3A)

Singapore’s first ever Geragogy Guidelines, developed by the Council for Third Age (C3A), was launched in March 2021. This new set of guidelines provides insights and recommendations on three areas, namely i) the learning preferences and challenges of the senior learner; ii) effective training methods that can enhance the learning experiences; as well as iii) the different trainer’s characteristics preferred by older adults.

This programme provides an overview of the Geragogy Guidelines, highlighting key principles and best practices. Participants will have the opportunity to understand and equip themselves with the various principles and recommendations that can enhance current practices in areas such as curriculum design and course delivery.

These guidelines can help you enhance and allow learning processes to be inclusive for learners of all ages, which will in turn build and foster a more conducive learning environment for your programmes.

By the end of the workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the C3A Geragogy Guidelines
  • Obtain a better understanding of senior learners and their different characteristics and needs
  • Learn about the various recommendations to better engage with the senior learners and apply the relevant techniques in your area of work
  • Recognise and build upon the various characteristics of trainers found to be effective in engaging older adults

This workshop will be useful for Trainers, Curriculum Developers, Course Administrators, Centre Managers, Management from senior-centric organisations, Management in charge of Continuing Education and Training, Learning & Development Managers or Human Resources managers involved in planning of learning needs for mature employees, and other professionals with areas of work that involves engagement with older adults.
