Do older people study?

Being old does not become us disposable subjects, by the way, the elderly persona have the right to education as other age groups. Being old does not leave us without desires, in fact, many older people decide to start studying in old age, because maybe that is a postponed desire.

Older people can also study at University, just as other sectors of the population do. Without discrimination and under equal conditions. Older people can also get trained in the use of new information and communication technologies (ICT).

Proposals or devices that include the elderly population must be considered, taking into account their diversity.

There are University Programs for the Elderly with a limited range of courses in order to promote the education and training of this group and increase social and community integration.

Last Sunday, October 2, our President Andrea Albino and Vice President Andrea Villagra were present at the IX ENEETO whose headquarters were the National University of Mar del Plata. Both presented the preliminary results of the survey carried out on Occupational Therapy students about their participation in student organizations and the knowledge they have about professional organizations. They also discussed our institutional journey in these sixty years of life. The ENEETO was an opportunity to share with the student community the importance of being part of professional organizations as an action that contributes to the defense of our discipline. We thank the organization of the event for the invitation in the construction of this important axis.
