Promoting Intergenerational Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

What is the role of higher education institutions in preparing students to live and work in an aging society? How can we create reciprocal, mutually beneficial learning experiences for students and older adults? With support from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund, Generations United is working with Michigan’s colleges and universities to develop high-quality intergenerational teaching and learning opportunities that combat ageism, build generational empathy, reduce social isolation, and foster collaborative approaches to addressing complex societal challenges.
This upcoming 1-hour webinar will share findings from a new report that provides a framework for intergenerational teaching and learning, highlights examples of current practices in Michigan, and identifies challenges, promising practices, and opportunities for deepening and expanding intergenerational learning in Michigan. We hope you can join us for this important webinar.
