Experiential Learning Guidebook
The guidebook explains why experiential learning is important in LTC, and outlines the benefits these opportunities offer for secondary school students, LTC residents and team members, and the broader LTC sector.
Intergenerational partnerships can emerge and develop in many different forms, such as programs, student experiential learning opportunities (e.g. Co-Operative learning), or volunteer opportunities. There is no shortage of research supporting the success and contributions of these opportunities, especially in recent years. Read the background report to learn about this research and the many benefits for older adults and the community.
