The Learning, Epistemology, and Design Lab (LED Lab) at the University of Washington’s Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering designs and studies ways for people to develop fluency and critical agency in increasingly computational and data-rich environments. We focus on learning experiences that are creative, playful, and situated in the learners’ communities.

Our work consists of developing new experiences and technologies for learning, as well as studying existing communities, experiences, and practices that support learning and knowledge production.
