Research Interests

Experiential Learning

As a professor in video production and motion design and practitioner, Dr. Rogers has found it crucial to students’ learning that each have experiences that effect the society in which he/she lives. It is with this belief that he has adapted his classes to involve real-world projects. His students have worked with clients on educational videos for the Indiana Department of Corrections, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (2 projects) and the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana, marketing videos for the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Indiana, Washington Township Schools and the IUPUI School of Philanthropy. His students are currently working on a series of training videos for passport usage with the State Department in a partnership with the Diplomacy Lab.

Technology-Supported Directed Reflection

Making experiential learning a cornerstone of his educational philosophy also means providing students the opportunity to reflect. Through research and studies he has found directed reflection offers opportunities for deeper learning and also the ability to advance students metacognitive skills. He has also found that there is a latency between when students experience and when they reflect, therefore tainting the reflection content. It is with this in mind that he is currently working with a team to develop EASEL (Education through Application-Supported Experiential Learning). The EASEL system pushes content to the student’s mobile device before an experience is scheduled, tracks the experience time and location and provides the student prompted reflection items within minutes after the experience is no longer tracked. Along with prototype development he is also in discussions to form partnerships with nursing, occupational therapy and dentistry. The system will work in tandem with current learning management systems.

Innovation Education

Building upon my work in experiential education and user experience design (see research section) I have conducted research to understand best practices in teaching innovative practices to students. I was granted two faculty fellowships by University College to develop a specialized Summer Bridge in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I have also engaged with multiple areas of the campus on innovation at IUPUI and throughout the city of Indianapolis. Currently, I am starting on a Welcoming Campus Initiative project to support this effort.

Implications of User Experiences

With the advent of pervasive devices such as the Oculus Rift (virtual reality headset) and Leap Motion (hand detection), new environments are being created that allow for new ways of learning and training. The user experience is crucial to the creation of these environments. Dr. Rogers has worked on multiple projects in this area of research. Most notably, he have been involved with the user design of the Advanced Virtual Manufacturing Lab and user experience of training on a CNC machine in this environment. He has also worked with individuals in the Department of Kiniesology to utilize the Oculus Rift to study weight shift management and in Biomedical Engineering to study the implications of utilizing the Leap Motion to help victims of phantom limb syndrome.
