The present study aimed to investigate the conceptions of learning and the satisfaction with life in hospitalized older adults. Opinions on learning have been analyzed taking into consideration participants’ gender, age, education level, marital status, job, and hobbies. Furthermore, the correlations between the conceptions of learning and satisfaction with life have been analysed. The research tools used were two questionnaires: the abbreviated version of the Questionnaire About Popular Conceptions of Learning (QAPCOL) and the Satisfaction With Life Scale. It emerged that the abbreviated version of the QAPCOL is also applicable to hospitalized older adults and has a consistent underlying structure in which three conceptions of learning have been identified (learning as an interpersonal, individualistic, and focused process) and two types of feelings (negative and positive) associated with it. Analyses showed that conceptions of learning are not influenced by gender and education level but are sensitive to age, marital status, job, and hobbies. The cultural, artistic, and sport activities practiced by the older adults are associated to a positive view of learning.
Keywords: Older adults, satisfaction with life, conceptions of learning, hobbies
