Needs of Senior Citizens Participating in the Design of University Courses

Chien-Hui Yang and Jui-Ying Hung
Abstract—Aging population structures have become a global development trend. In Taiwan, the progressive aging of the population has resulted in the emergence of new industrial dimensions and issues. According to the 2011 statistics announced by the Department of Household Registration, there were approximately 2.6 million citizens over the age of 65 by the end of 2011. In Taiwan’s aging society structure, senior citizens demonstrate greater self-perseverance, and successively participate in community lifelong learning based on their personal intentions to achieve the goals of self-satisfaction and life fulfillment.

Index Terms—Senior, elderly learning, learning needs.
