What Is The Future Of Educational Gerontology

  • Frank Glendenning (a1)


Educational gerontology is a comparatively new field of study. In British terminology, it concerns learning in the later years and the methodology relating to this. This special issue of the American journal Educational Gerontology provides an opportunity for reflection on the current state of the art on both sides of the Atlantic. Huey B. Long of the University of Oklahoma, as Guest Editor, invited contributors (eight American and one British) to speculate on likely developments in the field of educational gerontology during the period 1990 to 2010. Not all the authors accepted the challenge and four of the nine papers are considered here.
