The revival of research circles: Meeting the Needs of Modern Aging and the Third Age

Östlund, Britt LU (2008) In Educational Gerontology 34(4). p.255-266
Abstract
This paper provides evidence that it is worthwhile to reconsider the traditional research circle method as a means of involving people in the third age in fulfilling their needs to participate in learning activities and make their voices heard. The findings are based on three cases of research circles consistently driven by the interests of the older participants and which increased their capacity to deepen their life experiences, create a political agenda for necessary change and become more attached to local history.
