Abstract: Population ageing is a global phenomenon profoundly affecting the well-being of communities. Social sciences, design, and engineering each offers unique, insightful innovations for ageing societies. In due response, this course intends to help curious learners to make sense of the current innovation practices in the field of ageing and related studies. For example, how could relevant stakeholders acquire a holistic policy mindset for developing an age-friendly city; how are needs identified while designers and engineers develop products and services for the older adults, etc. This introductory course is suited to learners who wish to gain a preliminary, but multidisciplinary perspective on the current ageing issues. Students who plan to pursue a related career, or practitioners who are embarking on certain creative ageing projects will find opportune challenges and insights from the course.
