The Applied Cognition and Training Science Lab investigates issues related to expertise and the science and practice of training.
Our work includes knowledge assessment, evidence based training programs, instructor tools and strategies, measures of training effectiveness, and team training techniques. We have tackled a variety of challenges in domains such as general aviation, military tasks, nursing, and process control.
The lab is currently working on a four-year FAA grant to develop assessments and training to increase general aviation pilots’ weather related knowledge and skills. Contact: Dr. Beth Blickensderfer.
