Teaching & Learning Lab

Empowerment through Education

Student Research in Teaching and Learning Lab

Students in this lab are engaged in a variety of research and design. They are specialized in different areas of design. Some students are specialized in areas outside the discipline of design. But most of them have something in common. Students in the lab shared common interest in their concerns with issues related to the current education systems, sustainability, and the society. They explore how design can be used to solve issues related to our education systems, and in turn solving societal issues at large.
This page provides an overview of the research titles engaged by students in the lab.
