The Learning & Experience Design (LED) research group was established in August 2017 under the leadership of Dr. Ana-Paula Correia, Professor of Learning Technologies and Director of the Center on Education and Training for Employment at The Ohio State University.

The research group is dedicated to investigating learning design processes and pedagogies to create deep learning, which is learning that is situated in applied contexts. We believe that, in deep learning, “learners relate ideas to previous knowledge, look for underlying patterns, examine claims critically, and reflect on their own understanding” (Weigel*, 2002, p. 6).
