The study adopted a descriptive, cross - sectional survey design. Randomization sampling technique was used to select 378 retirees from six State capitals in the six geo - political zones of Nigeria. The instrument for data collection was: Ageing Perceived and Expected Learning Contents and Modes Scale’ (APELCMS). The validity of the instrument was ensured through face and content validity and for the reliability, a pilot test was conducted and a test re - test was administered after three wee ks, yielded a correlation coefficient (r) of 0.811. Frequency count, percentage and t – test statistical method was used to analyse the data. Findings indicated that the mean age for the sampled from the six geo - political zones = 61.90 years, expected lear ning contents were, learning activities on demand and development for group with specific knowledge and abilities (59=15.61%), preventing security threat from neighbourhood and larger society (71=18.78%); modalities for starting a petty trading and skill a cquisitions for extra income (51=13.49%); diverse family and community roles (41=10.85%); ageing social and health care (65=17.19%); changes in legislations and policies (43=11.38%); unpaid careers and support institutions for the ageing group (41=10.85); coping with life after retirement (07=1.85), and the perceived ageing - centred learning modes indicated life - long open education and learning that provides for adult later life education (39=10.32%), technological innovations (59=15.61%), considers gender, culture and economic status (121=32.01%), government and non - government supports (119=31.48%) and life - long open education and learning that did not place complete priority on certificate and grade (40=10.58%). The finding also discovered a statistically s ignificant gender difference on the expected learning contents (t = 4.69 < 2.101) and statistically significant gender difference on ageing - cantered learning modes (t = 2.91< 1.957). Recommendations were made towards integration of individual ageing group perceived and expected learning contents and modes into the life - long open education and learning programmes in Nigeria and other similar areas. // Paper ID 52
