Description: This course examines the concept of human performance (the ability of people to complete activities and tasks) through the investigation of the four key bodies of knowledge related to human performance: anthropometry, biomechanics, perception, and cognition. The course summarizes each body of knowledge in terms of its relationship to universal design, and provides key design strategies for each.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to…
Explain the four key areas of human performance knowledge and their importance to universal design, citing specific examples.
Contrast universal design and best practices in ergonomic design using the example of the bell curve of characteristics and abilities.
Apply the four key areas of human performance knowledge to universal design using the key strategies discussed.
Identify each of the human performance areas in a given sample environment.
