AGE-WELL and EPIC-AT Public Webinar: Accessibility when Introducing New Technologies to Older Adults

January 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST



  • Kim Sawchuk, PhD, Director of ACT, Concordia University  
  • Constance Lafontaine, Associate Director of ACT 
  • Ash McAskill, PhD, Programs Coordinator, AGE-WELL 


Description: This webinar will discuss the ethical considerations researchers working in aging and technology should have when introducing new technologies to older adults. Some older adults may be hesitant or new to technology use, whether with a healthcare innovation or everyday information technology. Our panel will share accessibility practices and insights from their work on the Ageing + Communication +Technologies (ACT) project: a research project that addresses the experiences that older adults have with aging and the proliferation of new communication technologies.
