Vývoj sociální péče a formy vzdělávaní seniorů v ČR
Foltýn, Jan
The presented work deals with the issue of life of seniors in the Czech Republic. There are a number of changes associated with aging that affect an individual's quality of life. These are physical, psychological and social changes that manifest themselves in all areas of an individual's life. Probably the biggest change is retirement, which is accompanied by the search for a new meaning of life. The opportunity to study can help in this regard. Seniors can use a variety of forms of further education. However, they most often look for educational activities carried out within universities of the third age. In the presented work, the relationship between the quality of life of seniors and education within U3V will be determined. For this purpose, the data of the Czech Statistical Office concerning the quality of life of seniors will be analysed and a questionnaire survey among seniors will be carried out. The aim will be to find out the difference between perception of the quality of life of seniors attending universities of the third age and seniors who do not study at the universities of the third age.
What is the motivation of the seniors to the study of the universities of the third age?
The work presented is focused on the study motivation regarding U3V. The main goal of this work is to examine the most common types of motivation of seniors in relation to the U3V study programme and to compare them with aspects which could potentially influence the overall motivation. This shall be achieved via research. Furthermore, this work is also focused on the problematic of motivation as a separate topic and as such deals with the already existing theory of motivation and attempts to use these as a learning ground for determining what the actual motivation to study the U3V programme is. This work consists of theoretical and practical parts.

The main goal of this thesis is to capture the current state, main challenges and key topics in the field of non-formal education for senior citizens in Czech Republic. The system of non-formal education for senior citizens represents a complex structure of institutions, which offer educational programmes and activities. Both the system and the senior population are immensely diverse, which, on one hand, offers a high degree of flexibility and autonomy to both, the participants and the institutions. But on the other hand, it presents a challenge for public policy to capture the complexity of the phenomenon, whilst maintaining inclusivity. The non-formal education for senior citizens isn't defined by the legislative and the field therefore falls under three different departments: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports; Ministry of Labour and Social Affair and Ministry of Culture. Due to the aforementioned diversity, the research uses qualitative study design and is carried out through expert interviews and the analysis of public policy documents. The sample of experts is designed to capture the experience of all types of institutions, which offer some form of...
