Description - Introduction to Human Factors: Applying Psychology to Design by Nancy J. Stone

Introduction to Human Factors: Applying Psychology to Design is a comprehensive, but accessible text that introduces students to the field of human factors and ergonomics. This book is intended for undergraduate students, written from the psychological science perspective along with various pedagogical components that will enhance student comprehension and learning. Given our passion for the field, and desire to better educate people about human factors because of its wide applications, we provide a text that can be used in psychology departments and can potentially reach a wider audience beyond engineering.

This book is ideal for those introductory courses that wish to introduce students to the multifaceted areas of human factors and ergonomics along with practical knowledge the students can apply in their own lives. Students from a variety of majors besides psychology (e.g., social work, education, engineering, computer science) will gain valuable information useful in their academic, professional, and personal lives.

  • Presents vignettes of real world events to introduce the chapter topic and links the chapter material back to the vignette
  • Provides the Application to Special Populations section at the end of each chapter. This will help students understand how to consider and design for special populations
  • Offers Critical Thinking Questions at the end of each pedagogical box that explores a topic or circumstance
  • Uses everyday real world events as well as military and aviation applications
  • Includes critical thinking exercises to help students apply the human factors principles to their own lives
