Department od Education, NTNU
Compared with Western countries, the theoretical researches and practical developments of education for older adults in Taiwan are underdeveloped. More attention has been given to education for older adults since the advocacy of lifelong education and learning society in Taiwan. However, research related to the philosophy of education for older adults remains rare in Taiwan. This study, therefore, aims to explore the different philosophical paradigms of education for older adults and their implications on education for older adults in Taiwan. There are three main sections in this paper. Firstly, this study explores four philosophical paradigms guiding the research andpractice of education for older adults: 'the functionalist approach', 'criticaleducational gerontology', 'the humanist approach', and 'experience, dialogue and transcendence'. Secondly , the implications of the four philosophical paradigms on the practices of education for older adults are discussed with paticular attention to the purpose, instructor's role, teaching style, and curriculum. Finally, criticisms and recommendations regarding the practices of education for older adults in Taiwan are made in order to facilitate the future development of education for older adults in Taiwan.
