Ergonomics and Human Factors Research in the Classroom

Cornell professor of design and environmental analysis Alan Hedge and students Scott Brenner and Samantha Berg discuss the benefits of research in the classroom and career applications for the field of ergonomics. Dr. Hedge has his students conduct experiments that ergonomists use in their research.

Berg explains that she and the other students are testing usability of different kinds of computer mice to determine which mouse is the best. How does this course help prepare them for real world research?
