Battling Ageism, Myths, Misperceptions of Mature and Older Workers and Learners: Breaking Barriers, Mitigating Precarity, and Finding Fulfilment in Late Adulthood

Mr Poon King Wang, Singapore University of Technology and Design

This research study adopts an ecosystem/whole of society lens to understand ageist beliefs and proposes ways to breakdown these perceptions. Additional aims are to understand how mature/older workers plan for and transit into different phases of learning, work, and retirement as they experience change in priorities, health conditions, financial circumstances, and life aspirations, and how lifelong learning enriches them so that they continue contributing to the economy and positively influence society.

Dialogical Inquiry: Developing Quantitative Instruments for Profiling Future Skills

Asst Prof Albert Kai Chung Lee, Nanyang Technological University

This project brings together two fields of research that rarely work together – social psychology and a socio-cultural perspective, both within the field of adult learning. In a small way, this project provides a means to make visible the assumptions, theoretical stances, and units of analysis embodied in the logic of various epistemological, ontological approaches that are otherwise assumed and, thus, silent. The project will move beyond multi-disciplinary research towards a transdisciplinary approach in the field of the science of adult learning, in Singapore and around the world.
