Tiina Tambaum is a Research Fellow at the Estonian Institute for Population Studies, Tallinn University and she teaches Educational Gerontology classes for postgraduate students at the Institute of Educational Sciences. During the last 5 years she has been engaged in SHARE project as a researcher and a project manager. She belongs to the consortium of Erasmus+ project "Old men say yes to the community" together with Slovenian, Polish and Portuguese teams. In her doctoral research, she has been dealing with questions of tutoring skills in intergenerational learning circumstances in which teenage students instruct older people to use Internet. In 2015, she introduced her preliminary results also in Glasgow. She has published academic articles about older learners in mixed-age learning groups and about older rural men’s readiness and their obstacles to passing on their skills and knowledge. In 2016 the first Gerontology text book for HEIs in Estonian was published and two chapters were written by Tiina: “Educational Gerontology” and “Ageism”. In 2017, Tiina published a book in Estonian titled “Glasgow is better than Edinburgh”. This 121-pages hardcover book includes stories from periods Tiina spent in Glasgow in 2014–2015 and 2016 as a visiting researcher invited by University of Glasgow.
