Modality and Meaning Translations in Games and Simulations
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

My research on modality representations and meaning making began with my master's thesis work on using haptics in computer game design and is now primarily focused on two projects that are currently running in parallel with each other.

The Sightlence project creates design tools that enable designers to visually work with haptic signals as a design material during development of utility software and computer games. The goal is to make it easier to actively use the haptic modality in conjunction with graphics and audio in user interface design. Visualization of haptics helps with overcoming some of the challenges currently facing designers when they work with the modality.

The Simulated Provocations project develops computer game simulators for use in pre-service teacher education in classroom management. The goal is to make them more proficient at responding well and in an appropriate manner in situations involving conflicts and provocations that can occur in the classroom environment.
