HLTH3035/MECH3035/NUR3035: Leveraging Emerging Technology and Data to Promote Healthy Aging
No matter what field of study a student pursues, the influence of an older adult is present and intergenerational work abounds. In this seminar, students will have an opportunity to explore new horizons that will push the boundaries of familiar aging in place concepts. Aging and its challenges will be explored and reimagined. Futuristic thinking in the world of aging integrated with leveraging technology and new innovation will be cultivated. A problem-based, service learning approach will provide students an experiential learning platform on which to design new solutions for older adults’ limiting factors that impede their quest to remain healthy and functional. The use of technology to advance interactions with older adults will be the focus of the final project.
