In this unit students’ informal research will be developed further. The focus is on theoretical and philosophical concepts of lifelong learning, recreation and leisure related to lifestyle. In particular there is focus on the impact on health and wellness for people with disabilities into adulthood and older age. Students will critically analyse the factors that influence participation in interests and leisure and how they can facilitate individuals’ access to meaningful leisure and recreation in the community. Social and environmental factors that influence lifestyle, health and wellness will be investigated and linked to the identification of individual health and recreational needs and interests. Students will further develop their broad understanding of the impact that politics, history, cultures, institutions and attitudes to disability have on the inclusion of people ageing and people with disabilities in many social settings. This unit encourages students to actively confront the barriers to inclusion that are faced by people with disabilities and to develop strategies to address those barriers. This unit will be significantly self-directed to enable each student to proceed usefully along their own learning pathway.
