The Behavior Analysis and Technology SIG was created with the mission to advance the science of behavior through the development, dissemination, and application of technology in basic and applied settings. Technology can refer to developments in behavioral science, as well as developments in computer science, information technology, and related fields. Technology may be defined as “…the use and knowledge of tools, techniques, systems or methods in order to solve a problem or serve some purpose” (Twyman, 2011).
This SIG aims to (1) serve as a scientific and professional reference and networking group for its members, (2) disseminate information to inform its membership and promote its mission to a wider audience, and (3) organize an annual meeting to provide a forum for discussion of the affairs of the SIG. In pursuit of the first aim, we have updated our website (https://batechsig.wordpress.com) and created a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/groups/TheBATechSIG) with more than 900 members. In service of aim two, we maintain a blog on our website and encourage Facebook members to post BA- and technology-related content and comment on posts.
Membership is free. Fill out a membership application, found here: https://batechsig.com/membership/
