For 100 years, technology has been embedded as a consistent part of occupational therapy. For the next 100 years, as technology advances, occupational therapy practitioners and occupational scientists will deepen their understanding of how technology and occupation intertwine. The Eleanor Clarke Slagle lecture will review the past, present, and future role that technology has played and will play in the profession and discipline. The lecture will promote the interdependency of technology and occupation as the core concept in theory and a key to practice.
