Encouraging Senior Centers to be Learning Organizations
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.

The presentation will follow the following order:

1) Introduction to Watkins & Marsick's Learning Organization Model
2) Research Shows: Low scoring in Embedded Systems (ES) and Points of Intervention (PI)
3) Practical Applications:
a) Embedded Systems (policies & procedures and evaluation process)
b) Points of Intervention (leadership from top, cultivate learning, new people: new ideas)
c) Role of National Accreditation
