Course Description

Once upon a time, "retirement" meant dropping out of the workforce entirely to pursue leisure or rest. But in the last one hundred years, we have been granted an unprecedented gift—a thirty-year increase in life expectancy. Work and retirement no longer need to be mutually exclusive. Indeed, recent surveys show that 80 to 90 percent of retirees will work during retirement. And, even when working out of necessity, their work will offer new and meaningful ways to use their hard-earned wisdom and experience. Using A Long Bright Future by Laura Carstensen, we will brainstorm how to retire in ways suited to supersized life expectancy. We will each develop possible alternatives to full-stop retirement and grapple with internal and external barriers to these alternatives. Expect challenges to long-held beliefs about aging and spirited discussions with each other about new ways to combine work and leisure.  Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion
