Paper long abstract:

This paper explores the experiences of ethnographers working within multidisciplinary teams of clinicians, designers and engineers on the co-design and iterative development of digital platforms and visual content with and for community dwelling older adults. Using examples from 1) the TRIL Building Bridges Project for social engagement, 2) a self-management and peer support system for COPD sufferers and 3) the IDS-TILDA website on ageing and intellectual disability, this talk will consider opportunities, challenges, power asymmetries, decision-making, and ethical dilemmas involved when incorporating ethnographic methods within design processes.
