The Intergenerational Care Project Forum

The Intergenerational Care Project recently held a Q & A forum at Griffith University’s Southbank campus. It was a successful event. Our panel of experts consisting of members from the research team, industry partners from aged and child care and consumer representatives led the discussion on intergenerational care and learning programs. We received constructive questions and feedback from the audience who participated in the forum.  Watch a video snippet of the forum below. For the full video recording, visit our video library.

Intergenerational Care Project Team Workshop

Our inaugural Intergenerational Care Project Team Workshop was held on Saturday 19 August 2017. The purpose of the workshop was for the project team to get together and discuss topics specifically in relation to the implementation and evaluation of our exciting Intergenerational Care Program.

A total of 23 members of the research team attended the event, including three members flying in from inter-state and two members joining us via tele-conference. Attendees represented a broad range of Intergenerational Care expertise from industry, consumer groups, aged care, child care / child development, health economics, and academic / research.
The full day’s workshop began with a series of short, informal presentations regarding the current status of the project and latest developments. We also launched our Intergenerational Care Website and reviewed the roles and responsibilities of team members. The group was then divided into four working party teams under the key project areas of: Workforce, Education, Economic Evaluation and Project Evaluation. Each team worked collaboratively and productively to address the key objectives. The day ended with each team giving a brief summary of their conclusions and engaged in discussions with the broader group.
Overall, the day was highly successful and productive and we would like to thank the research team for their valuable contributions.
