Our primary research and development focus are complex learning environments. Specifically, we are interested in how computer technology can improve learning. Our activities range from basic research (cognitive psychology of learning and memory) to software development (Intelligent Tutoring Systems).

The ADL-CITSRD facilitates the research required to address the training challenges faced by the military, government, academia, and the workforce both now and in the future. The best way to meet these challenges is through the applied use to of learning technologies (e.g., natural dialogue systems, intelligent tutoring systems). To this end, ADL-CITSRD researchers have extensive experience in research, development, and evaluation of advanced learning environments. Further, ADL-CITSRD seeks to establish an inclusive and dynamic research environment by welcoming outside researchers and policy makers with similar goals to help us accomplish our mission.
