This toolkit contains two components: a Learner Module and a compendium of Teaching and Learning Resources.


The Learner Module is designed for students. It is a digital, interactive learning activity. To assign the module to students, instructors can click on the Learner Module icon to the left and copy the URL into their teaching documents for their learners to access. The module is free and accessible to all.

Note: When accessing the learner module, some users may wish to use the CTRL/Command + or – function to adjust the size of the text on their screen.



The Faculty Resources document is intended to provide preceptors and other instructors with activities and training ideas for health professional students following their completion of the Ageism learning module.
