The Data Interactions and STEM Teaching and Learning (DISTAL) Lab is the collection of researchers and students associated with Dr. Victor Lee at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education who are working research, design, or development related to data in education and/or STEM education, broadly conceived.

Who we are

While we do have a physical space in the CERAS (Center for Educational Research at Stanford) building, we are better understood as a community of people who meet for lab meetings and social gatherings, share some online spaces and research interests, and offer constructive support and feedback to each other as we improve as researchers. 

The work of this lab is predominantly rooted within and disseminated through the interdisciplinary field of learning sciences (see Stanford’s Learning Sciences and Technology Design PhD and Learning, Design, and Technology MS program) which favors contextual understandings of cognition, culture, design, and computing. However, other research and design traditions appear or are used for specific projects as appropriate.
