Lynn A. Johnson, PhD



Research Interests:
  • Investigation interactive simulations to teach and assess problem-solving skills.
  • Investigation of haptics in a surgical simulator to teach and assess tactile dental skills.
  • Evaluation of the merit and worth of instructional products and methodologies.
  • Development of national and international standards of quality for instructional software and the use of these standards in the peer review of instructional technology products.
Current Projects:

Iowa Dental Surgical Simulator a haptics simulator to teach and assess margin detection. (NSF 02-2)
