Gerontechnology Research for Life Tomorrow: Human­ Element Considerations in Teaching Older Adults


This seminar talks about the Gerontechnology Laboratory in Monash University Malaysia which serves as a research platform for the domain of gerontechnology – an interdisciplinary field of scientific research focused on developing technology for older people. The lab was established to create a suitable living environment and conduct research on the health and well­being, active ageing and safe living of older adults using assistive technology. Besides sharing the interdisciplinary research projects in the Gerontechnology Laboratory, this seminar presents interesting insights from a research on the impact of human narrator (vis­à­vis a cartoon narrator) in designing instruction videos to teach older adults to use gerontechnology applications.
