Postdigital Lunch 09: "Inclusion of people with cognitive impairments through digitalization - potentials and limits".

Our ninth Postdigital Lunch tooke place on 21 October 2021. This time our hosts were Prof. Sandra Verena Müller (Faculty of Social Work), Prof. Ina Schiering (Institute for Information Engineering) and Prof. Ruth Schilling (Leibniz Institute for Maritime History).

Our host Prof. Dr. Sandra Verena Müller from Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences talked with Jun.-Prof. Dr. Mario Schreiner from Otto von Guericke University about the potential  that digitization can offer to people with cognitive impairments. How can digitization increase the participation opportunities of these people? How can a successful use of caregivers be prepared? How can digitization increase the autonomy and self-determination of people with cognitive impairments? Does advancing digitalization result in a new / additional risk of exclusion? Why do many discourses on the topic focus on occupational participation? Is cultural participation a luxury good? How can cultural participation of people with cognitive impairments succeed in museums? Professor Müller explored these and other questions in conversation with Junior Professor Schreiner and examined the potentials and limitations of digitization, especially for people with cognitive impairments.
