Co-designing Participatory ICT Strategies With Older Adults
Aug 2020 - Aug 2022

Shaping Connections Research Program

This project sought to design strategies in conjunction with older consumers to incorporate their lived experiences of communications technology and to assist seniors in managing security risks to be better equipped to engage with the digital economy. As the research assistant, I coordinated a series of interviews and developed materials for co-design workshops, undertaking the data analysis and reporting of the research. I also conducted a cultural probe study with the University of the 3rd Age members.

I acknowledge the people of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nations on whose unceded lands I conduct my work. I respectfully acknowledge their Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
