Biography

Scotty D. Craig is currently an Assistant Professor of Human Systems Engineering within The Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. He earned a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology (Cognitive) from The University of Memphis with a focus on cognitive learning. Dr. Craig has studied emotion and learning, discourse processing, multimedia learning, vicarious learning environments, and intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) in both laboratory and applied classroom settings.

Dr. Craig has established two active labs while at Arizona State University. He is Director of the Cognitive-Based Applied Learning Technology (CoBALT) Lab which conducts cutting edge research at the intersection of human cognition, technology, and the learning sciences which can provide solutions to real world problems within education and training. He is also Co-Director of the DoD Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative Partnership Lab at Arizona State University. Current projects examine virtual humans for learning and training, music on the web, effectiveness of electronic textbooks for learning, and applications of ITS to training within virtual worlds, classrooms, and after-school settings.

His publications related to the aforementioned disciplines are extensive with career contributions comprising 90 primary publications (i.e., articles, proceedings, and book chapters). See his Goggle Scholar profile for current work.Thirty-three of these publications have resulted from work conducted at ASU. Specifically, his ASU scholarly output includes 10 journal articles, 18 conference proceedings, 2 journal special issues with a published editorial, 5 book chapters (two with non-ASU affiliation), 7 conference presentations, and 6 manuscripts under review.  This work is disseminated in high quality peer-reviewed outlets. Two articles have appeared in Computers & Education (#1 Social Science journal by Google Scholar Metrics). His 2015 paper in Journal of Educational Computing Research was in the Top 10 Most Read Articles list for 2016 (ranked #1 for August to October). He has co-edited two books: Readings in Training and Simulation, Vol. 2 with Dee Andrews (2015, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society), and End-User Considerations for Educational Technology Design with Rod Roscoe and Ian Douglas (2017, IGI Global).

Research Interests

Past research areas include several intersections of emotions and cognition, human discourse, vicarious learning, question asking, multimedia educational environments including animated pedagogical agents and human-computer interactions.
