Working in the fields of avionics and electronics, Dr. Lajoie has also collaborated with top academic researchers to develop computer-based learning environments that enhance professional training of F-15 avionics technicians. SHERLOCK, a computer-based coached practice environment designed to entrain electronics troubleshooting skills, is one example of such ambitious efforts to highlight the marriage of technology and learning.
