Charness, an internationally recognized expert on the use of technology by older adults, often speaks and writes on how technology can be better designed to be more accessible for older individuals and to more adequately address their wants and needs.
This speaker series — previously known as the Faculty Luncheon Series — is the oldest, continuous speaker series at FSU and is offered as a way for members of FSU’s scholarly community to engage with one another.
This year, the program — previously known as the Faculty Luncheon Series — has been renamed in honor of its founder, Milton S. Carothers, who was campus minister at the Presbyterian University Center (now the UKirk) when he founded the lectures.
