The objective of this presentation is to introduce the theory of organization learning to senior center leadership and staff. Research will be presented from a recent national study of senior centers as learning organizations, including centers’ areas of strength and weaknesses, and potential points of intervention will be discussed. Following this, the Watkins & Marsick Dimensions of Learning Organization (DLOQ) tool will be shared with attendees and they will have the opportunity to discuss their results and discuss ‘lessons learned’ and ‘best practices’ as a group. This discussion will be facilitated by a veteran senior center leader who will offer ideas for instilling this theory with practice. National Senior Center Accreditation will be suggested as a tool for change.
