Labs

Advanced HCI Lab

Located at DeGroote School of Business on McMaster’s main campus in Hamilton, the Advanced Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab enables the understanding and enhancing of individuals’ experiences as they interact with various stationary and mobile Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). This lab is suitable for conducting research with one participant at a time, or multiple participants collaborating virtually by utilizing other MDTRC labs in the Ron Joyce Centre building in Burlington. The Advanced HCI Lab embraces traditional behavioural research methods as well as non-invasive neurophysiological tools.

Evidence Based Decision Making Labs

Located at the Ron Joyce Centre building in Burlington, two identical labs enable investigating and enhancing the experiences of individuals interacting with various stationary and mobile Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Each of the labs is suitable for conducting research with one participant at a time, or multiple participants collaborating virtually by utilizing other MDTRC labs in Burlington and Hamilton. The Evidence Based Decision Making Labs embrace traditional behavioural research methods as well as non-invasive neurophysiological tools.

Reconfigurable User Experience Lab

Located at the Ron Joyce Centre building in Burlington, this novel and unique lab features a versatile design with an emphasizes flexibility, such that the space can be easily reconfigured to simulate different natural professional, educational, and social settings. This lab is suitable for research with multiple co-located individuals simultaneously, and multiple participants collaborating virtually by utilizing other MDTRC labs in Burlington and Hamilton. The Reconfigurable User Experience Lab embraces traditional behavioural research methods as well as non-invasive neurophysiological tools. Alternatively, this room can be used to monitor the live progress of experiments being conducted in the other MDTRC labs, providing insights in real time.

 

Focus Group Room

Located at Ron Joyce Centre building in Burlington, the Focus Group Room enables researchers to conduct in depth interviews and qualitative studies with up to nine participants. Alternatively, this room can be used to monitor the live progress of experiments being conducted in the other MDTRC labs, providing insights in real time.
