Abstract [en]

An examination of learning in later life in the context of lifelong learning shows that it is a phase on its own and not simply an extension of adult learning, particularly in the 21st century. It exhibits characteristics unlike earlier phases and has benefits that are more aligned with later life. The changes to the growing share of this demographic in the population has implications for the provision of learning opportunities. The life stage changes that are evolving are shown compared to previous generations. The needs and benefits of late life learning are described in contrast to adult learning and the adaptations for successful lifelong learning are listed based on life span theories and current research.
