Leveraging Technology to Enhance Innovation and Dissemination of Behavior Analysis

Technology solutions are in high demand in a global society that values efficiency. New devices and applications are emerging, which allow behavior analysts to develop and deliver efficient, accessible, and personalized application of our science. However, the cost-benefit analysis should be considered prior to adopting any new technology solution to ensure that automation does not compromise the behavior analytic technology.  The members of this panel will discuss their diverse backgrounds and experience in developing and studying the use of technology to enhance the application of behavior analysis (e.g., data collection, e-learning, virtual reality, telehealth).  They will also advise on how various technologies can be leveraged to enhance our understanding of behavior and to increase dissemination of behavior analysis in areas such as education, business and industry, and health services.
