Speakers

Danaë Stanton Fraser

Danaë Stanton Fraser is a Professor in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Bath and leads the CREATE Lab. Danaë’s research focuses on the design and evaluation of mobile and ubiquitous technologies for interactivity and learning. Her research interests are in tangible and ubiquitous interfaces for education and transfer of spatial skills from virtual to real spaces in research areas such as technology-enhanced learning, human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing and spatial cognition. Danaë’s work is underpinned by a process of co-design with end users and industrial partners in the development and evaluation of technologies.

Iain Gilchrist

Iain Gilchrist is a Professor of Neuropsychology at the University of Bristol. Iain’s research is focused on how humans perceive and respond to their visual world. He takes a multi-disciplinary approach to this topic combining basic and applied research and using a range of methods including behavioural science; psychophysics; brain imaging; the study of patients with damage to the brain; robotics; computational modelling and human ethology. A major current focus of his work is Audience Psychology which is supported by the Bristol based MyWorld project, the BBC and BT.

This talk will be held in the building and online! Book your free ticket here.

In this Lunchtime Talk Professors Danae Stanton Fraser and Iain Gilchrist will discuss the range of methods available to measure audience response to performances. We hope to provoke a lively discussion about the strengths and weakness of these various  methods (from questionnaire to heart rate monitoring) and to provide ideas about how to enhance what you may be doing already; what new methods you could use and reveal what the future of audience evaluation might look like.

Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 20th May 2022 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.

The lunchtime talks are partly supported by MyWorld, a project led by the University of Bristol to support creative industries in the region.
