Congratulations to Dr. Weiming Gorman on her article publication: Revitalize Lifelong Learners: Teaching Gender in a Lifelong Learning Classroom

This paper investigates lifelong learning practices in a women’s rhetoric course at an Osher OLLI (Lifelong Learning Institute) program at University of Pittsburgh. The course adopted a holistic and positive approach by celebrating lifelong learners’ strengths - their invaluable backgrounds and life experiences –fostering vitality and wholesomeness in older adults. By engaging them in active and participative learning, the instructor enabled students to enrich the classroom and validate their values and attitudes toward women's issues. Proven feminist pedagogy, employed by the instructor, constructed a classroom culture of community, belonging and connectedness.
