UL - Research Project on Intergenerational Learning

"Exploring the use of discussion cafés as a means of increasing intergenerational learning between older people and student nurses"

The study is about breaking down barriers and to help build links and understanding between generations it is useful to develop ways to increase intergenerational learning. This project aims to do this by holding an online discussion café between members of the older population and student nurses and by asking both older people and student nurses to complete an online survey about the experience. Participants must be aged 65 years and over.

The study aims to:

(1) Look at the experience of older people and student nurses of participating in an online discussion café

(2) Explore if intergenerational learning took place 

(3) Determine whether discussion cafés are a useful way to develop intergenerational learning
