Covering theoretical and practical aspects, this book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-science review of aging, learning, skill acquisition, and training. The text encompasses a broad range of issues relevant to current and future older populations, ranging from theories of learning in adulthood to practical guidelines for training and instructional design. It also addresses issues such as e-learning, multimedia training formats, training and telework, and recent findings regarding cognitive plasticity and cognitive training. The authors present case study examples from a variety of domains, including healthcare, and include discussions of motivation as well as age discrimination.
