A Conversation with Eric Day

11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. ET Thursday, June 22

Join us for the fifth Conversation Series event of 2023 featuring Eric Day, who will talk about science for a learning workplace.

When it comes to training and skill acquisition, a learner-centric approach is becoming increasingly common within organizations. A learner-centric approach allows employees autonomy in training and development opportunities. Technology-based training has been instrumental in giving employees more control while also increasing participation. Industrial and organizational psychologists can contribute to learning in organizations by engaging in research and practice on technology-mediated training and development.

Day is a professor of psychology at the University of Oklahoma where he is part of the doctoral program in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology. He earned his Ph.D. in I-O psychology from Texas A&M University, a M.S. in I-O psychology from the University of Central Florida, and a B.S. in psychology from James Madison University. He is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), Association for Psychological Science, Academy of Management, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, APA’s Society for I-O Psychology, and APA’s Exercise and Sport Psychology Division 47.

His research interests span both personnel psychology and organizational behavior, including topics in personnel assessment, selection, training and development, leadership, and group dynamics. Much of his research involves the study of human performance and complex skill learning with emphases on individual differences in ability and motivation, self-regulation, retention and transfer, and team-based training. He has published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals including Human Factors, Human Performance, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Management, Organizational Research Methods, and Personnel Psychology. His research has gained attention from The Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, and ABC News 20/20. Funding sponsors for his research have included the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the U.S. Department of Defense (Army, Navy, and Air Force). He currently serves on the editorial boards for Journal of Applied Psychology, Human Performance, and Small Group Behavior.
