Jennifer Sasser Facilitates AGHE Workshop

Dr. Jennifer Sasser, chair of the human sciences department, facilitated a workshop at the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education conference in St. Petersburg, Florida, in February 2013.

The workshop, entitled The Adventure Continues: Teaching Critical Thinking in Gerontology Part Two, was a follow-up to her 2012 workshop. Through collaborative inquiry, resource exchange and active learning, participants helped create a catalog of principles and practices designed to foster students' capacities for critical reflection and action in the multi-faceted field of aging.

The AGHE Annual Meeting and Educational Leadership Conference is the premier national forum for discussing ideas and issues in gerontological and geriatric education. Educators, clinicians, administrators, researchers, and students share their experiences, expertise and innovations regarding teaching and learning about aging and older persons.
