Measuring Experiences and Their Impacts Experiencing is a continuous process, in which the waxing and waning of attention and emotional engagement over time play an important role in determining the impact of experiences. In the first part of the workshop, an experience typology (Duerden et al., 2018) is outlined which distinguishes between memorable, meaningful and transformational experiences. The initial development of an instrument for measuring experience impact is then presented. Next, speakers will showcase innovative methodologies for measuring experiences in leisure contexts. Research using physiological measures such as hormonal oxytocin levels, and time-varying changes in heart rate and skin conductance will be discussed.
