Description

Pursuing a graduate education in midlife is a transformative experience. This book guides those midlife adults who are considering, completing, or convocating from graduate journeys so that they can better understand what it means to be a learner in midlife.

Learners in Midlife draws together the most current theories and research on midlife and applies them to the graduate experience. This research is then brought to life through the colorful personal narratives of several midlife learners who share their experiences and advice. Several chapters are also included that outline a few of the many new directions opening up in workplace education. Because it focuses on the learner’s experience, this book will be of interest to faculty and administrators responsible for part-time master’s programs. It also offers employers and human resource personnel ideas for retaining mature employees by encouraging lifelong learning.
