WonderLab

A co-design learning lab

Professor Lisa Grocott leads a diverse team with expertise in creativity, serious play, transforming mindsets, creative technologies, and experiential learning. Including learners and teachers as design partners is central to how we stay curious and working with interdisciplinary collaborators is how we stay relevant. In recognising that the challenges facing the field of learning cannot be addressed by one discipline along we explore how the people-centred, speculative, and solution-oriented attributes of design might inform social learning experiences?

Housed in MADA (the Monash faculty of Art Design & Architecture) WonderLab collective is committed to new ways of knowing, designing and learning. At the core of the WonderLab community is a diverse PhD cohort of roaming researchers from Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, New Zealand and the United States with backgrounds in design, education, neuroscience, engineering, architecture and social impact. With generous intellectual and creative support from a network of supervisors across Melbourne and overseas, and between design and adjacent disciplines. Together the 20+ team of researchers are equally invested how we might translate interdisciplinary research into high impact learning.
