"Nihil est in intellectu quod non sit prius in sensu" ("Nothing is in the mind that was not first in the senses") said already the philosopher and saint Thomas Aquinas. We humans very much rely on our eyes when taking in information. Hence, if we want to study the mind, how it is organized, what processes run it; we must study, what information comes into this mind via our eyes.

Eye tracking is an apparatus that measures where a person looks at, for how long, and in which order. Recent technological developments allow us to track people’s eyes in various authentic settings, such as, when studying behind a laptop, when browsing on a smartphone, when driving a car, when visiting a museum. Hence, nowadays we have the possibility to study the mind, its functioning, and structures, in ‘the wild’. Within this event we present diverse approaches to use eye tracking as a research tool to study processes of learning and teaching.

We will discuss what opportunities eye tracking research can bring to the insight on how humans build expertise. And share examples of current applications of eye tracking in research and application development.
