dc.description.abstract <p>As the older population grows rapidly worldwide, gerontechnology can play an increasingly crucial role in improving older people’s quality of life in an affordable and sustainable way. However, even with growing interests, gerontechnology has yet to be established as a widely available educational or research program. One root cause is the lack of a well-established curriculum to train new gerontechnologists and to help professionals in relevant fields to develop gerontechnological specialties. This paper summarizes our experience and insights gained from designing, instructing, and evaluating learning modules for gerontechnology in the past 2½ years, and outlines the learning materials and effective pedagogies for gerontechnology that can be adopted and further developed.</p>
