Cinema for Active Ageing

SPECIAL NEEDS

CINEMA FOR ACTIVE AGEING

METHODOLOGY

Participants will become familiar with the rational, training methodology and tools developed by the partners of the Grundtvig Multilateral project “CINAGE – Cinema for Active Ageing”.

Participants will become familiar with the CINAGE Learning Package which includes learning strategies, methods and resources to support the CINAGE Course.

The CINAGE Course enables older learners to shoot their own films about active ageing based on their self-reflection concerning the issues of old age and identification of adequate active ageing strategies.

The Course will introduce the participants to two topics: active ageing, what needs to be done and learned in order to age actively, and production of short featured films. Both topics and related activities can be successfully integrated in older adult or/and intergenerational education. Writing scripts and producing short featured films are highly appreciated not only by adult educators but also by older learners and adult education providers.

Activities will include presentation of the educational material, sessions on topics such as active ageing and andragogy, screening and debating a variety of short and feature films as well as a cinema atelier for the production of new short films, which will be organized in collaboration with elder local participants.

This course is addressed to staff or volunteers working in the field of adult and later life learning from any public or private organisation.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective of the course is to prepare participants to be able to use cinema as a mean for offering exciting training activities for later life learners. By the end of the course participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the potential use and exploitation of the CINAGE PACKAGE, which includes:

  • Manual for Learners with information on the 6 training modules developed during the project;
  • Guide for facilitators/trainers with tips on how to implement the proposed activities;
  • Executive summaries on active ageing research and pilot actions already developed;
  • List of the selected 6 European films demonstrating active ageing themes/competencies and supporting fact sheets;
  • 12 CINAGE short films as DVD Pal including supporting fact sheets;
  • 12 situations and strategies to cope with active ageing.
