Dr Brian Findsen, formerly a professor of adult education at the University of Glasgow (2004-2008) and the University of Waikato (2008-2019), has worked in the field of adult and continuing education for the majority of his paid working life. Brian is also a longstanding member of Age Concern Hamilton. Brian is now setting up as an independent consultant for adult learning, specialising in later life learning. Brian will discuss concepts on later life learning (LLL) and exemplars on “good practice” from his international experience, particularly in Asia. Participants will gain a better appreciation of LLL in a global context.
Brian’s “fun fact” is that there are more senior learning centres in Taiwan then there are cities in New Zealand.
