Hal Eden, Co-Principal Investigator

I am a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Computer Science and Associate Director of the Center for LifeLong Learning & Design at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I have been the lead developer on the Envisionment and Discovery Collaboratory (EDC) since its inception and have worked closely with domain experts on embodying innovative design practices in the EDC. My research interests include participative design, tangible tabletop interfaces, interactive design and learning environments, embodied design, interaction support for face-to-face collaboration, and socio-technical environments in support of social creativity.

Elisa Giaccardi, Co-Principal Investigator

I am a Research Associate at the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design, University of Colorado, Boulder. My research interests include design theory and creative practices. I am particularly interested in design strategies and social software for public authoring, collective storytelling, and place making. My current work is focused on developing a more culturally oriented definition of metadesign in support of public welfare and sustainable development. Within SoD, my goal is to bring PSS to public audiences and focus on aspects of collaborative mapping that sustain the specific engagement of local communities with their natural and social environment.

Yunwen Ye, Co-Principal Investigator

I am a Research Associate at the Center for LifeLong Learning & Design, University of Colorado, Boulder. My research interests include understanding various technical and social factors of collaboration among knowledge workers, and developing computational platforms that facilitate situated knowledge collaboration. In particular, I use software development as a test field of understanding and supporting situated knowledge collaboration, focusing on its cognitive and social aspects. By conceptualizing a software system as a socio-technical information space that consists of people, code, and documents that are inter-linked, I am studying how knowledge is created, transfered and combined in software development.
