  • The Impact of COVID-19 on Child Education & Equity

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/18/2020

    Part of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Webinar Series: Listening and Acting​ This webinar is part of the new HFES Listening and Acting webinar series, which is dedicated to helping improve opportunities to engage our HFES community to listen, learn, and take action as appropriate and in partnership to address systems-level challenges that affect diversity, equity, and inclusion, within HFES and in the world around us. The seminar is focused on issues, experienced by communities, parents, and children, that are at the intersection of the COVID-19 pandemic, childhood education (pre-K through grade 12), social disparities, and potential overlaps with human factors and ergonomics.

  • Disparities in Covid-19 Infection Rates and Mortality: Systems Factors

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 07/28/2020

    Part of the Listening and Acting Webinar Series In the US there are disparities in race, age, sex and other demographic factors in Covid-19 infection and mortality rates. The webinar will begin with a review of relevant epidemiologic data, including an examination of systematic testing in local communities (e.g., the San Francisco Mission Study). This will be followed by a moderated discussion that considers societal and health care delivery systems that contribute to the observed disparities and how the disparities can be addressed through human factors methods?. Questions from the audience will be submitted via the chat feature on zoom and addressed by the speakers.

  • The Virtual Fit Test: A Practitioner’s Tool for Estimating Fit in Multivariate Anthropometric Design

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 07/27/2020

    Original Broadcast Date: July 27, 2020 Practitioners are interested in estimating what percent of users will fit product or workstation designs. Generally multiple anthropometric dimensions are involved , for example, a standing workstation might be specified using standing elbow height, elbow to fingertip reach and forearm to forearm breadth. This webinar provides a brief review of why multiple dimensions require multivariate methods to estimate the percent of the intended users who will be accommodated. This webinar also introduces HFES’ free Virtual Fit Tool (VFT), which can be used to make multivariate accommodation estimates for a North American user population. The emphasis of the webinar is on demonstrating how to use the VFT spreadsheet tool to estimate multivariate accommodation through several worked examples.

  • Occupational Ergonomics TG Mini-Webinar Series, Part 1: How COVID-19 is changing Ergonomics Practices and Considerations

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)

    In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the landscape of ergonomics research and practices has changed dramatically. In this Part 1 OETG mini-webinar series, our panelists will answer some of the pressing questions our field has to address: Musculoskeletal risk is continuing to be an issue, despite remote work. What are some newer considerations (physical and psychosocial) for assessing and managing these MSD risks? How can ergonomists be ready for workforce who now come in with prolonged durations of sedentary behavior and those with pre-existing chronic conditions? How could companies adopt strategies for both remote and field ergonomics to address some of these challenges? With social distancing, how could applied ergonomic practices evolve to enable virtual ergonomic assessments? Ergonomists in several industry domains may be considered “non-essential” if not tagged with EHS. How do we evolve as an applied discipline to ensure that our community is not only staying relevant but also contributes vitally to reduce/mitigate worker injury risks in the new normal?

  • The MAGIC of Semantic IxD

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 04/29/2020

    Do you know how much cognitive load your design ideas will place on the user even before you sketch out the first screen? If the cognitive load of your UX design is too high, users will find your product difficult and unpleasant to use. It's possible to measure cognitive load in a usability lab, but by then it is too late and too expensive to fix the underlying problems. The solution? You need to know how much cognitive load your users will face and mitigate it at the beginning of your design projects. In other words, a technique to minimize cognitive load should guide your design practice from the very start. In this guest lecture, Professor Rosenberg will introduce Semantic Interaction Design, an innovative method that spans all the way from core conceptual models to the deployment of applied game theory techniques to create optimal experiences for users. This webinar addressed: How cognitive science lends itself to Semantic Interaction Design; Real examples of the benefits and success of this new approach; How to convert product requirements into initial UX designs 10X faster; How to design experiences with higher initial quality; The 4-layer UX framework that unifies UX grammar, presentation, flow and game theory; How this method incorporates data driven business decisions to guide product success
