3rd Iberoamerican Congress

By Luis Solano-Mora, Costa Rica


The 3rd Iberoamerican Congress: "Universities for all ages" was held August 5-7, 2009, at the Universidad de Costa Rica in Costa Rica.

The congress was focused on educational programs, curricular modalities, educational experiences with older people, research, and interuniversities network support.

It was developed into lectures, roundtable discussions, and workshops related to older students. Depending on the activities, the sessions lasted 20 minutes to 1 hour.

The universities that are working, developing projects, and teaching classes to older students will obtain the information for free. The organization of the Congress is preparing all the topics to be posted on the Web site. For more information, please contact M.Sc. Marisol Rapso-Brenes, the coordinator of the Integral Program for Older People at Universidad de Costa Rica, via e-mail at marisol.rapso@ucr.ac.cr or phone at (506) 2234-8492.
