    This paper presents three ideas which could inform an adult education response to the challenge of lifelong learning in the later years. The three ideas are about: 1. A concept of adult learning that involves changing frames of reference or the framework within which we think, feel and act 2. The search for identity in later life and how it relates to this reframing learning 3. Research, or what we know already about the learning needs of older adults.
