Barry Golding, University of Ballarat, Australia

This paper explores less-examined learning beyond work in Australia, specifically the learning experienced by older men through participation in age-based community organisations. It is based on an Australian mixed method study of 48 diverse community organisations across three Australian states. Research interviews and surveys with participants in these organisations explored aspects of older men's learning. Some comparisons and insights are suggested between aged-based and non-age-based community organisations in which the median ages of participants are relatively high.
