Members: update your directory profile

We encourage every member to add information to their directory profile and a link to a personal website for the AAGE website. A guide to doing this can be found here.
As other members do the same, you should be able to browse our directory for other members with similar interests and foster opportunities for networking and collaboration. (We hope to soon have a searchable system of member information for specific interests, but currently you can only ‘search’ for names)
Note: The member directory and teaching resource section is accessible only to AAGE members.
AAGE is also creating a members only teaching resource section. Please send me your syllabi, handouts, lesson plans, PowerPoints, grading rubrics, assignments, and other resources that you have used to to teach classes in aging and the life course. Also, specify how you want to be acknowledged when someone adapts your materials (i.e. “Adapted from Jane Doe”).
Thank you!
Linh An (AAGE membership coordinator)
and Jason Danely (President Elect)
