Title: Giving Students a Look at Aging


1
Giving Students a Look at Aging
  • Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
  • at UTMB Health

2
Lets explore together
  • Who am I, where is my OLLI, and why this
    workshop?
  • Do you already have any intergenerational
    programs?
  • Do you plan to begin one or expand what you
    already do?

3
Objectives for Today
  • Define 3 levels of intergenerational
    learning/sharing possible in your OLLI
  • Explore examples of successful intergenerational
    programming
  • Examine peer-reviewed literature
  • Assess how these principles apply at your OLLI

4
Three Levels of Intergenerational Learning
  • Elementary students share lifestory and
    occupational mentorship
  • Community college students visit classes,
    interview students
  • Post-graduate OT, PA, MDs and
  • MD students rotate, volunteer, and teach

5
Elementary School and OLLI
  1. Local Satori School project Students interview
    OLLI members, write their lifestories, then
    give a dramatic presentation and present books
  2. Local public middle school classes interview
    OLLI members from various backgrounds ferry boat
    captain, hospital dietician, jazz musician

6
Community College Students
  • Nursing students interview OLLI members and visit
    classes
  • OLLI interactions fulfill Community visits
    required for graduation
  • CNAs, LVNs, RNs, and others choose experiences at
    OLLI as a component of their curriculum

further health of mind, body, and soul!

UTMB OT, PA, and MD Students and Residents

    high marks from faculty

    OLLI

    Residents from Family Medicine, MD/PhD, and
    Geriatric Fellows

reviewed presentation at 2014 UT Innovations in
Health Sciences Education Conference in Austin

my patients!
10
Philip, Fourth Year Student
  • Three things learned
  • I was less strong/flexible than OLLI members
  • How little some know about computers
  • The wonderful life that can be achieved with
    focus on healthy living and lifelong learning (in
    contrast to grim outlooks on life in hospice home
    visits)

11
Med Students in Pilates
OLLI members could bend, flex, and balance in
ways I could not!
12
Dimple, Fourth Year Student
  • Three things learned
  • Art teacher explained more cohesively than any
    college teacher
  • Fascinating multitude of diversityvariety of
    voices, conclusions, meanings
  • Best elective in all of medical schoolI tell
    everyone!

13
Students Try Meditation and Yoga
How hard could it be? I was sore for days
afterward!
14
How it Works

    students
  • Schedule includes movement/fitness, academic,
    lifestory, and interviews
  • Students meet with director for program overview
    and peer-reviewed literature

    instead of one
  • Some students scheduled three day per week in
    OLLI
  • Students requested opportunities to return to
    OLLI after elective concludes

17
My FavoriteLifestory

Your Reflections?
  • How does intergenerational learning fit my OLLIs
    goals and mission?
  • How would OLLI members benefit?
  • How might students and our community benefit?
