Summer 2018 - By appointment

"Good design starts with an understanding of psychology and technology."- Don Norman


The Device & Usability Learning Lab is the first of its kind in Arizona, combining the concept of an open device lab with a usability research facility. It provides a unique learning environment for ASU faculty, staff, and students. The Lab also hosts community workshops, tutoring and outreach for K-12 students.
