Course Description

We will cover theories and findings from cognitive science and related disciplines concerning human information processing mechanisms and capacities. We will consider how understanding our perceptual and cognitive strengths and limitations can inform decisions about teaching and training strategies, as well as designing technological environments to suit our needs and abilities. The course also considers methodologies for assessing human performance in different contexts. Lectures use examples from transportation (aviation and driving), medical, and education domains to expand on concepts from the readings. We also consider design and training implications of individual differences in cognitive abilities by examining the impact of aging on user abilities. 3 undergraduate hours. 4 graduate hours. Prerequisite: PSYC 100 or PSYC 103 or consent of instructor.
