Welcome to the Team Performance Laboratory
The Team Performance Laboratory (TPL) has a staff composed of research scientists, psychologists, engineers, software developers, and research assistants dedicated to the study of Human Factors Psychology and Engineering, Ergonomics, Usability Engineering, and Cognitive Psychology.
The mission of the Team Performance Laboratory is to develop and test theory and methods from the psychological, organizational, and computational sciences in the study of individual and team process and performance. The laboratory exists to rigorously train the next generation of scientists by pursuing the following primary goals:
- Develop students into professionals for the practicing scientific and academic communities by supporting learning in an applied, multidisciplinary environment
- Contribute to the general and scientific community by generating knowledge, developing products, and collaborating both within and beyond UCF
Research Assistants Needed
The Team Performance Laboratory is currently looking for undergraduate research assistants. If you are interested please fill out an application at the UCF Psychology Department [ Research Assistant application website ] and specify the Team Performance Laboratory (Dr. Florian Jentsch) on your application.
Knowledge gained from research paved the way for the development of computer software products such as the Rapidly Reconfigurable Event-Set Based Line-Oriented Evaluations Generator (RRLOE) and the Intelligent Training Suite (ITS) experimentation software library.
Systems for Understanding and Measuring Macrocognition in Teams (SUMMIT) is a multidisciplinary university research initiative (MURI) sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The study includes members from the University of Central Florida as well as partners from the Cognitive Engineering Research Institute in Mesa Arizona, University of Pittsburgh and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
