Associate Professor, Human Systems Engineering, The Polytechnic School
Rod Roscoe is an associate professor of human systems engineering in the Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and a Diane and Gary Tooker Professor of Effective Education in STEM. He is affiliate faculty of the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and a member of the Center for Human, Artificial Intelligence, and Robot Teaming (CHART).
From 2007-2009, he was a research associate with the Institute for Software Integrated Systems at Vanderbilt University (Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science). From 2009-2011 he was a postdoctoral fellow with the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis (Dept. of Psychology). From 2011-2013, he held the position of assistant research professor in the Learning Sciences Institute at ASU.
His research investigates how the intersection of learning science, computer science, and user science can inform effective and innovative uses of educational technologies. He is also interested in how cognitive, metacognitive, and motivational learning processes can be scaffolded by educational technology. Recent work has explored engineering education with a focus on human systems engineering and applied psychology.
From 2017 to present, Roscoe has served as a Tooker Professor to study and advance the Human Systems Engineering curriculum, and to explore how this program can improve students' engineering and change how they conceptualize and solve engineering problems.
He is passionate about issues of inclusion and equity, and recently co-edited a volume on Advancing Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice through Human Systems Engineering (CRC Press). He serves on ASU Committee for Campus Inclusion (Polytechnic Campus co-chair), Chair of the HFES Societal Impact Committee, a member of the HFES Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and a member of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.
