Utilizing An Empathy Lens To Understand Information Technology Usage And Adoption
This workshop will enable several research leaders across three disciplines to gain a better understanding of each other’s research communities and to foster a new interdisciplinary research agenda for Future of Work at the Human-Technology-Frontier combining Sociotechnical Systems, Human-Computer-Interaction, and Empathy research communities. The three communities will work on two common and problematic areas related to information technology: Distribution of Fake News and Healthcare Technologies. The workshop and project outcomes will provide a new research focus that utilizes the common techniques of each discipline to identify and examine research problems at the Human-Technology-Frontier. The workshop presenters will develop case studies with faculty in the School of Journalism, College of Medicine, and School of Nursing at the University of Missouri, where faculty utilize technology to engage and train students for related professions.
