Quincy Conley, assistant professor in the Department of Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning, will demonstrate how the research lab is used to evaluate the many ways technology can improve learning both in the workplace and in the classroom.

Current research activities in the lab include how augmented reality, performance support systems and the collective wisdom of social media can impact a person’s potential to learn.

Specializing in usability testing and research methodology, researchers are looking for ways learners can benefit from new learning technologies as they become more readily available. Current efforts include:

  • Conducting usability studies that gather data as users interact with environments ranging from commercial interactive tutoring systems to mobile devices
  • Developing performance support systems for first responders using Google Glass
  • Exploring the combination of augmented reality with mobile devices to improve performance
