Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course presents some selected issues in the field of sociology of ageing in particular, as well as social gerontology. The primary goal of the course is to present global ageing trends, social diversity and inequalities of ageing and social consequences of the process, the impact of social support on the idea of successful ageing. The course also aims at a wide range of opportunities and challenges that societies face in terms of ageing, e.g. productive ageing, generational intelligence, informal care and elder mistreatment. On the whole, the course’s unifying theme is the impact of dynamic interactions between older people and their environments or social agents, such as family, work(place), peer group, media. Encompassing such an array of matters, the course creates students an arena for a (moderated) discussion and favourable circumstances to shape their own opinion on presented issues. The course places great importance on the aspect of education for ageing.

Estimated total number of hours needed to achieve the effects of learning: 55-80.
