Yi-Yin Lin, Lorilee R. Sandmann
Although existing literature addresses adults‘ motivation to learn, and some specifically focuses on older adults, it is now recognized that older adults are more heterogeneous and complex than other age groups. Therefore, this study seeks to provide an alternative theoretical framework to investigate motivation to learn for older adult learners in Taiwan. Keywords: older adult learning, educational gerontology, motivation to learn.
