I’m Writing a TIP Column! Crash Course in I-O Technology
The explosive growth of new technology is fundamentally changing I/O psychology, and we are not in general well-prepared to respond to it! Technology is not why most I/O psychologists went into I/O psychology!
To help fix this, I’m the writer of a brand new column in The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist called Crash Course in I-O Technology. In each issue, I’ll be “demystifying” a technology that people are encountering in the field and academia, and collecting reactions from I/Os in the field, to get the real story on who really needs this tech and why.
Will it fundamentally change everything we know about I-O, is it just old wine in new bottles, or perhaps somewhere in the middle? Let’s find out!
To that end, I’m asking I-O practitioners, academicians, and students (you!) to provide in the survey linked below some examples of technologies that you have encountered in the field, heard about in practice, or have to deal with on a daily basis – yet if someone asked you to explain precisely what that technology was or how it worked, you don’t really have a great answer. Perhaps you’re the expert on this topic, but none of the other I-Os you work with are. Perhaps you needed to hire a random person into your organization’s IT function to run some kind of weird software that no one else understands! Whatever it is, I want to know the I-O technology you’re dealing with!
The most popular answers in this survey are very likely to be the topics I write about in Crash Course, so think carefully!
If you’re willing to help me out with this (thanks!) please complete this quick 2-question survey: https://odu.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bEIbKxHlC2Hjj9z
I’m looking to have answers collected before Friday May 13 (first writing deadline’s coming up!), so please complete it before then!
