Tracking Emotions at Work


Published on

Slides of my presentation at the Quantified Self Europe Conference, November 2011, Amsterdam. We presented and discussed several approaches to capturing emotions in workplace environments, as well as some of the challenges that they involve. These approaches are part of the MIRROR Project, whose main goal is supporting reflective learning at work, by creating an easily used set of applications ('Mirror' apps), that enable employees to learn lessons from their own and others experiences to perform better in the future.
