Lifelong Learning Among Older Adults in Singapore

This research investigated older adults’ experiences and perceptions of lifelong learning in Singapore.

Lifelong learning enables older adults to cope better with the transitions experienced in the ageing process. However, not many older adults in Singapore participate in lifelong learning activities. This research investigated older adults’ experiences and perceptions of lifelong learning in Singapore. Particularly, the research sought to: (i) examine the motivations of older adults who engaged in learning and how their wellbeing was impacted (based on the Wellness Model); and (ii) understand the non-learners’ perceptions of lifelong learning and barriers to participation. The project utilized a qualitative study approach of in-depth semi-structured interviews with 64 older adults.
