 Briefly describe your organisation
Cognitive Science Section is doing research and development in experimental, theoretical and applied cognitive psychology. In the field of technology-enhanced learning this research includes competence models and how they can be applied in educational technologies, general learning aspects and theories used in TEL, adaptation and personalisat ion, as well as the evaluation of TEL systems. Another research stream is decision making and how they can be applied in security applications, for example emergency management or criminal intelligence. Further application fields where we apply psychological research include smart cities, cultural heritage, and robotics. Our research methodology includes theoretical research, empirical studies, cognitive modelling, and eye-tracking. In addition to research, we also provide technical concepts, formal descriptions, and software development of the theoretical work.
