  12. 12. Strengthening Learning Capacities® PRINCIPLES OF THE ARROWSMITH PROGRAM • Design a task that stimulates a specific cognitive function (targeted/differential stimulation) • Start the level of task difficulty just above the level of current functioning (effortful processing/complexity) • Remove the support of areas that could compensate for weaker functioning (effortful processing) • Build in performance mastery criteria that is rewarded – accuracy, consistency, automaticity

  17. 17. Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UC Berkeley • 100 stimulating courses • Learning community with speaker series, field trips, social activities, travel, peer-led learning circles and clubs • Pathways to participate in research; esp.as participant- observers/pioneers
  18. 18. Who We Serve • 2200+ members each year • Professionals with advanced degrees • 70 % women • 90% white • 2/3 volunteer • 89% feel connection with Berkeley • 75% between ages of 65-79 years • 88% heterosexual
  19. 19. Concerns: • Lack of knowledge of older adults and later life • Connecting the lifespan of learning • Diversity: lifelong learning is self-funded • Learning: what is real learning? • Digital literacy/efficacy
  20. 20. What we teach and learn: Content • Cross-disciplines • Polysemic • Relevant to roles: citizens, mentors, civic leaders • Forward-thinking • Creativity as a new language • Expert/scholarship
  21. 21. How we teach and learn: Pedagogy • Experiential • Interactive • Use of technology • Appeal to all of the senses • Understand who we are as learners; what do we need to code, record and recall • What does it “feel” like to be learning something for the first time; the awkwardness of writing with opposing hand
  22. 22. Where we teach and learn: learning community • Social connectedness of learning • Intergenerational • Social accolades for taking courses outside of one’s “habit” of mind: challenge, variety and novelty • Evaluation: participate in evaluating what works • Appeal to groups of people where learning may be seen as taking time away from other responsibilities and provide them with the “unselfish” frame
