dc.description.abstract For the past three years instruction librarians at Indiana State University have taught information and computer literacy skills at a local retirement community as part of ISU’s Westminster Outreach Program. In teaching this population we soon realized that these learners did not behave like our university students and we had to adopt teaching techniques that addressed their unique learning styles. In this presentation we will review how we implemented and manage the program and examine teaching methods that work well with the elder, adult learner.
