CACHIONI, Meire; ORDONEZ, Tiago Nascimento; BATISTONI, Samila Sathler Tavares  and  LIMA-SILVA, Thaís Bento. Methodologies and Pedagogical Strategies used by Educators of a University of the Third Age. Educ. Real. [online]. 2015, vol.40, n.1, pp.81-103. ISSN 2175-6236.

This study aimed to characterize the pedagogical strategies used in educational activities on a continuing education program for seniors. It is an exploratory and descriptive study with the participation of 82 teachers/instructors. The responses related to what facilitates learning of the elderly have generated three groups of responses: Category 1. Problematizing Participant Pedagogy; Category 2. Cognitive strategies considering the declines associated with age; Category 3. Pedagogy of Transmission. It was concluded that during the educational process, an active and critical appropriation must be encouraged, instead of the static accumulation of knowledge on the part of the elderly.

Keywords : Teaching Strategies; Teachers; University of the Third Age.
