LTC lab

Laboratory Introduction

The Learning, Technology, and Cognition Lab (LTC Lab) is directed by Professor Tzu-Chien, Liu, and is dedicated to exploring the cognitive and psychological processes of learners in the digital learning environment, while searching for possible strategies to enhance learning effectiveness. The main research topics of this lab are cognitive load, cognitive style, and cognitive strategies of learners in the digital learning environment, as well as computer simulation-assisted teaching, discussion regarding classroom issues on virtual classroom research platform, eye movement, and computer dictionary-assisted English reading, and etc.
