09:30 - 10:00: How EyeLink eye trackers work:
We will begin with an introduction to EyeLink hardware, exploring how having a sophisticated understanding of the EyeLink hardware and Host software allows users to ensure they are using the equipment to its full potential.
10:00 - 11:00: Eye Tracking Data Quality - How to maximize it and how to measure it:
This will consist of a detailed discussion of concepts such as "accuracy", "precision", "noise" etc that are commonly used in eye tracking literature - including practical information on how they can be measured / reported. This is followed by detailed description and practical demonstration of the steps that can be taken to maximise data quality with the EyeLink system - including detailed instructions for optimal participant set up and calibration etc.
11:00 - 11:30: Tea / Coffee Break
11:30 - 12:30: Hands on training:
We will practice setting up systems and participants, performing calibrations, calibration checks on a range of different EyeLink systems / camera mounts. We will also learn to recognise and avoid poor quality data.
12:30 - 13:30: Lunch
13:30 - 15:00: Introduction to Experiment Builder:
This is a practical session - after a brief introduction, you will work on prepared scripts that we will provide, and learn key Experiment Builder concepts such as using nested sequences, data sources, referencing, conditional branching and much more.
15:00 - 15:30: Tea / Coffee Break
15:30 - 17:00: Introduction to Data Viewer:
This is another hands-on session - after a brief introduction, you will use prepared data sets to learn how to create Interest Areas, Interest Periods, use Trial Grouping and Aggregate Data mode, generate heat maps and output reports and much more.
