The ‘Art + Design: elearning lab - design for social change’ pursues a variety of educational and research activities, as well as practical socially orientated interventions in support of design for social change and innovation, social entrepreneurship, design education and technology-enhanced learning. We are a group of friendly individuals with diverse and complimentary skills and interests, and we work as a collective. Design thinking, evidence-based design, ethnography, phenomenography, grounded theory and action research inform our strategies. Our lab publishes the online journal ‘DISCERN, International Journal of Design for Social Change, Sustainable Innovation and Entrepreneurship’, available at www.designforsocialchange.org
