As human performance technologists we look at how people perform as individuals, in teams, and within organizations. We work with a variety of domains, sponsors and content areas to find the right solution to any challenge. Solutions are designed to answer universal needs and incorporated or transferred into other disciplines and domains.
Our mission is to enhance human performance through the use of appropriate technologies and strategies. These include:
Computer-based & Web-based Training
Decision Support Aids
Our Guiding Principles
We consider these to be our guiding principles:
Focus research on enhancing human performance using individuals, teams, organizations
Expand applied research in advanced performance technologies such as learning, simulation, information, etc.
Leverage internal UCF & local research & “talent”
Enhance effectiveness of the community’s use of technology through specialized “incubator/prototype” projects
Maximum use of “Just-in-time” non-traditional learning
Establish key partnerships with industry and agencies with common or complimentary focus
Use Web technology for communications & interactive problem solving
Use the Learning & Performance Technology Applications Model:
