Tobii and MediaLab — how to use eye tracking in humanities

Join Tobii and MediaLab of the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies (University of Vienna) for a one-day on-site workshop on how to use eye tracking in humanities

Because eye tracking collects data unobtrusively, it is an ideal tool for observing human behavior without impacting it. Our hope is by adding gaze insights to your qualitative and quantitative data, you will gain a broader understanding of perception and preference, enabling you to deliver nuanced findings.

We’ve designed a set of hands-on workshops to help you learn how our eye tracking glasses work and how to analyze large data sets. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of eye tracking to attend.

Note: The participation is free and the number of participants is limited.
