Flow and Technology: Being Lost in The Moment (Singapore)
|Date||18 July 2018|
We hope you can join us for this special evening in Singapore. Expect to hear an update on developments at Henley Business School and the University of Reading, reconnect with the local alumni network, and learn about the other international chapters across the globe to see how Henley is a truly international business school.
The evening's programme will be lead by a faculty knowledge session with Professor Susan Rose, Director of Teaching and Learning, Henley Business School, who will be talking about her current research around the interesting phenomenon called "cognitive flow" which refers to an individual becoming totally absorbed mentally whilst engaging in an activity. Whilst the concept was originally applied to activities such as music, sport and the arts, it is now relevant to human behaviour in relation to using the Internet. Absorbed young people using their phones is something we see around us all the time.
The application of technology by consumers, in particular via hand-held devices such as Smartphones, has increased significantly in the past few years. They are used today for a wide range of activities including shopping, banking, information access, map reading, entertainment, and even remote control of devices in our homes such as the heating or lighting. Psychological studies are looking at the effect on our cognitive behaviour as we use these new electronic devices.
