Shared Learning Environments in Long-Term Care

The Living Classroom is an innovative educational experience for students whose career path will lead them to work with older adults. Personal Support Worker education is one of many Living Classroom experiences. The education program is delivered in a long-term care home, led by a post-secondary educator and involving students and those living and working in the long-term care home within a culture of interactive learning.
