Learning Environments Lab

The Learning Environment Lab in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is home to a multidisciplinary team of researchers studying physical and online environments that support learning experiences. We are exploring four areas: (a) improving online learning experiences through data driven interaction design patterns, (b) increasing learning and decreasing distraction associated with wall sized information displays in classrooms, (c) improving learning experiences in design studio environments, and (d) increasing design agility through design studio pedagogy.
