Event description

Description

Improving human performance is a course where 4th year students learn how to improve human performance using evidence-based applied cognitive psychology, both through training and system design. The topics include expertise, automaticity, knowledge acquisition, how to practice, and skill transfer.

Professor Mark Horswill joined UQ in 2002. He is based in the School of Psychology and has been voted as one of the top three lecturers at UQ. His SECAT scores for PSYC4191 (last three classes) were between 4.9 and 5.0. Together with Blake McKimmie and Barbara Masser, he won the international Merlot Award 2016 for a UQx MOOC: Crime101x (currently with over 55,000 enrolments). His research involves using psychological science to save lives, for example, he led a team that created a hazard perception test that is currently a compulsory part of the driver licensing process in Queensland (completed by 44,000 drivers per year and part of the Graduated Licensing Scheme found to reduce novice crashes by 13% per year). He was also part of a UQ team that developed a national curriculum for colonoscopy training. All pre-clinical colonoscopy training in Australia is based on this curriculum.

Mark delivers these four hour classes as interactive presentations with in-built active learning techniques in a collaborative PC workspace. His presentations are interspersed with interactive activities and demonstrations.

Visitors are welcome to attend for just part of the workshop duration.
