UQ Usability Laboratory

Using the Lab

The UQUL can be used for the following general classes of investigations:

  • Cognitive and physical evaluation of workstation layouts and multi-screen navigation
  • Co-present collaborative work for groups up to around six people that is technology-intensive or otherwise
  • Remote collaborative work in groups up to around 12 people that is technology- and network-intensive or otherwise
  • Study of human interaction with portable or wearable devices
  • Wide variety of usability and interaction design activities.

We invite research collaboration on topics of mutual interest. Unfortunately, however, we no longer host commercial usability work within the UQUL. Tours of the laboratory are handled by Professor Penelope Sanderson.

Students interested in carrying out honours, Masters, or PhD projects in the UQUL with the CERG group should visit our page of Thesis projects.
