Here you can see a few seminars on video: http://www.culturaldiversity.hu/harmadik-kor interview with the organizer in hungarian here: http://www.elte.hu/hir?id=NW-4092

It is considerable what method one should choose for carrying out programmes for elderly. This passive, listening type of lecturing provides an academic, but distant way of learning. The transfer of information is quick and can digest scientific topics, however the recipient is not involved directly.
In our course it might be more advisory to apply more interactive methods, where people can network, get connections, and a dialogue can be started more easily
