Sit-in Programme

This project aims at fostering active participation of the elderly in school activities and lessons, and the intergenerational harmony through learn-and-teach dual identity in Elder Academy activities as well as promoting life-long learning and successful ageing by "Through Train" Learning Model. Thanks to the support from many professors at Lingnan University, seats are reserved for Sit-in Programme participants in undergraduate courses. The Sit-in Programme will be launched in the first and second semesters, with each subject lasting for one semester (around 12 weeks). The elderly enrolled in the Sit-in Program will have lessons together with the university students and have access to university library. No examination is required and a Certificate of Attendance will be presented to the Sit-in Programme participants with over 80% attendance.

Practical Courses for the Third Agers

The LIFE LingnanU Elder Academy Programme is sponsored by the Elder Academy Development Foundation to hold the "Practical course for the third agers". The Practical courses cover three major areas of application, (1) modern knowledge and application of science and technology, (2) application of Chinese and Western culture and active ageing, and (3) philosophy and intergeneration culture. The Practical courses, together with the sit-in programmes, provide a more tailored curriculum for the elderly to enrich their lives and integrate what they have learned.

The NT West Elder Academies Cluster was established in 2011 to co-ordinate the operation and curriculum development of the elder academy in the western New Territories. It was encouraging that the number of elders joining the network has increased from 10 elder schools to 51. In order to enable the elderly to exert their role of "active ageing", the NT West Elder Academies Cluster provides diversified learning activities such as visits, seminars, camps to the Elderly, in which the Elderly can enjoy and enrich their learning experience and personal sociality.
