President's Teaching and Learning Projects 2011-2012

Projects and Final Reports



Rebecca Genoe, Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies

After implementing intergenerational learning seminars in THRC/KIN 240, I wanted to investigate the experiences of the students and the volunteers in learning from each other about the aging process. Secondly, it was my hope to use the information gathered from students and volunteers to improve the structure of the seminars that both students and volunteers find the seminars to be valuable.
