Pioneer Groups- Researcher’s Blog, Sheffield Session 1
This week we held our first ‘Pioneer Groups’ in Sheffield and Dundee. These are interactive workshops aimed at creating activities and strategies to disseminate to industry what older adults want from Assisted Living Technolog. Although they are facilitated by two of the COBALT researchers they are participant-led. I was at the Sheffield group and we had great feedback from participants who said they have a lot to tell industry about what they want (and don’t want!) from technology. Really looking forward to the next Sheffield session on Tuesday 9th October and to hearing how our Dundee goes tomorrow from Maggie.
