Member Profile Differences Between Florida and National OLLI Institutes

Member Profile Differences Between Florida and National OLLI Institutes The purpose of this study was to identify selected characteristics of current Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) members in Florida and then compare the results between Florida and non-Florida institutes. This study was primarily quantitative and employed the Demographic and Behavioral Trends Survey (DBTS) with the addition of four open-ended response options. The data resulting from this comparison indicated that demographic factors, technology use, and time related to relocation after retirement were significantly different between a national sample and a sample of Florida OLLI members. These findings suggest that it is important for adult education field educators, administrators, and OLLI instructors to recognize the growing diversity and technical proficiency of current retirees to continue to promote effective lifelong learning practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Adult Learning SAGE

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify selected characteristics of current Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) members in Florida and then compare the results between Florida and non-Florida institutes. This study was primarily quantitative and employed the Demographic and Behavioral Trends Survey (DBTS) with the addition of four open-ended response options. The data resulting from this comparison indicated that demographic factors, technology use, and time related to relocation after retirement were significantly different between a national sample and a sample of Florida OLLI members. These findings suggest that it is important for adult education field educators, administrators, and OLLI instructors to recognize the growing diversity and technical proficiency of current retirees to continue to promote effective lifelong learning practice.
