Toronto Rehab researchers are invited to join this bimonthly journal club, either virtually or in-person (in Toronto at Toronto Rehab and in Vancouver at Simon Fraser University). It is organized by the CC3 Transdisciplinary Working group in AGE-WELL (led by Drs. Pia Kontos and Judith Sixsmith) for network members across Canada. It was decided to open up attendance at this journal club to the Toronto Rehab community to increase our capacity for information knowledge and exchange between AGE-WELL and the Toronto Rehab community.
The CC3 Transdisciplinary Working journal club is a space to critically explore what transdisciplinary working entails, why this is an important approach for AGE-WELL (Canada’s technology and aging network) and beyond, and what are the challenges and rewards of adopting this approach in the field of technology and aging.
Date of next meeting : May 12th 2016 11:00am-12pm PST/2:00pm-3pm EST
