Biography

Scotty D. Craig is an associate professor of human systems engineering within The Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. 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 is currently the Graduate Chair for the Human Systems Engineering Program and the President Elect for the Univeristy Senate of the Polytechnic Campus.

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 director of the DoD Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative Partnership Lab at Arizona State University. Current projects examine virtual humans for learning and training, identification of best practices for eLearning, Evaluation of mobile learning technology, 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 over 125 primary publications (i.e., articles, proceedings, book chapters, and edited books). He has edited Three books: "Readings in Training and Simulation," Vol. 2 with Dee Andrews (2015, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society),"End-User Considerations for Educational Technology Design" with Rod Roscoe and Ian Douglas (2017, IGI Global) and "Tutoring and Intelligent Tutoring Systems" (2018, Nova Science). Over the past two years, he has published multiple reports with the U. S. DoD identifying best practices for advance distructed learning (online learning augmented with technology).
