The Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) is one of the 13 Institutes of Technology across Ireland. The Centre for Creative Technologies and Applications (CCTA) is one of the research centres for the Faculty of Film, Art and Creative Technologies at IADT. The CCTA seeks to draw together the expertise and research interests of the academic staff and post graduate students in the Faculty. Creative Technologies is people centred technology in a digital environment. The goal, through both taught programmes and research is to explore the interaction of people and technology. This goal finds expression in a range of existing disciplines such as Audio/Visual Technologies, Gaming, Multimedia, Psychology, eLearning, Assistive Technologies, Teaching and Learning, eBusiness; and emerging disciplines such as cyberpsychology. IADT is committed to ensuring that our teaching, learning and research all translate into a beneficial contribution to the local and national economy. The Faculty of Film, Art and Creative Technologies offers highly innovative programmes across a range of disciplines in psychology, applied computing and digital media. The Faculty's programmes combine technical skill and knowledge with an understanding of the context within which creative technology operates in society. In all of our areas of activity, there is a strong emphasis on the human dimension to technology. Within the Faculty, IADT’s Department of Technology & Psychology, present research projects includes focus on developing and evaluating innovative eLearning and mobile applications for people with intellectual disabilities in collaboration with local services providers.
