Want to work on a project measuring the physiologic signs of learning?
Then you have come to the right place!
More precisely, you might consider working on a project using wearable sensors to measure the psychophysiological response of students to active learning environments (see the Myhal Auditorium shown on this poster).
One of the things I want you to help me create is a live feedback system that will tell me (or any instructor) when students are actively engaged in a way that facilitates learning or whether they are getting stressed out with activities. It will be like going to an Orangetheory fitness class but now biometric data will be used to measure how much learning is happening instead of what your ideal fat-burning heart rate is.
Come find me at lunch or check out my website to get more information about my open position.
