CLEVAR – Cognitive and Learning Environments in Virtual and Augmented Reality

The CLEVAR Research Group is a division of the GRIDLAB which is within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queensland University of Technology. Our research involves an analysis of people and their behaviours, particularly within engaging situations and contexts. We’re interested in understanding people’s perceptions and their experiences as they interact with Virtual and Augmented Reality Technology.

We apply principles, concepts and theories from psychology, cognitive science, sociology, HCI, computer science and interaction design in this process. From a design perspective, our research employs novel methods, tools and technologies to create new, engaging experiences.

We develop and evaluate applications and systems that have been designed to engage, motivate, educate and rehabilitate. Much of our research is conducted within a digital gaming context.
