TECHNOLOGIES AND AGEING IN SINGAPORE
2017/2018, Semester 2
Non-Faculty-Based Departments (Tembusu College)
Modular Credits: 4
With a rapid growth in ageing population, technological advancements offer opportunities to impact the lives of the elderly in Singapore. There is an increasing need to improve the health and social needs of the ageing population. In what ways can we do to help the elderly achieve a sense of worth, confidence and productivity? How do technologies empower and disempower the elderly to have a stronger connection to their community and improved social life? What kind of technologies are required to address the needs of the growing ageing population in the future and how can Singapore develop them?
Usually, Tembusu students should read a Junior Seminar before they read a Senior Seminar. Exceptions can be made for students who enter the College after their first year, or who have other persuasive reasons. This is decided on a case-by-case by the College Academic Review Board.
