The Research in Education and Design Lab (RED Lab) brought design thinking to the largest education research conference in the world, AERA. The RED Lab, a multidisciplinary group dedicated to understand how people learn design, is comprised of faculty, staff, and graduate students from the Stanford School of Education, the d.school, and Developmental Biology.
School of Education Professor Shelley Goldman and d.school K-12 Designer Adam Royalty ran a fast paced design challenge at the Design and Technology business meeting. By connecting with this network of fellow design researchers, we hope to create a thriving community of education design researchers.
Later in the conference, the RED Lab presented a poster documenting its effort to create a robust design thinking rubric, based on a performance based task following a three week math unit that incorporated design thinking principles. Many inspiring conversations followed and we look forward to collaborating with the design thinking research community.
