Stanford University’s "Perspectives in Assistive Technology" course explores the design, development, and use of assistive technology that benefits people with disabilities and older adults. 

Course instructor David L. Jaffe has invited Aging2.0 SF Chapter and NEXT Village SF members to attend classes via Zoom when they begin in January. Weekly course topics range from prosthetics and virtual reality to product commercialization and adapted sports.

On Thursday, December 3 at 1:30 PM, Dave will Zoom with us to provide an overview of the course and topics to be covered in the course lectures. 

He'll also explain how people can submit project ideas to him that address a challenge experienced by people with disabilities or older adults. If your project is selected by students, you would work with students to provide valuable input and feedback. Abby Tamara will also be on the Zoom to provide her perspective on pitching a project idea and working with student teams on projects.

If you may want to take advantage of this opportunity to "attend" Stanford classes on Assistive Technology, join us on Dec. 3 at 1:30 PM (Pacific) to get an overview of this course and see if you or someone you know might want to submit a project idea for students to work on for their course project!
