a living laboratory for transformative practices
in education

reDesignED brings together researchers, learning scientists, instructional designers, educators, students and community partners to collaboratively reimagine teaching and learning for a more equitable and sustainable future. Our research-based design initiatives result in usable knowledge about how to apply transformational educational practices and tools to solve real-world challenges.






We wake up one day and the way we work, communicate, and learn has changed. Technology is everywhere. Information, automation, and artificial intelligence are growing at exponential rates while our natural world is declaring Code Red for humanity. It is in this new world that we are educating learners.

To prepare learners to thrive in times of disruptive changewe need to reDesign education.

reDesign, you say?

Sounds painful.

That is where reDesignED comes in.

If the purpose of education is the equitable, holistic development of each student, scientific knowledge from diverse fields can be used to reDesign policies and practices to create settings that unleash the potential in each student (Darling-Hammond, et al., 2021).
