Our Mission

The Arizona Designing Equitable Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Lab (AZ DELTA) investigates design approaches for creating immersive, computer-based environments that can best support more equitable learning of STEM content and processes both in and out of school. In particular, we explore the impact of virtual worlds, educational video games, and mobile apps as platforms for situated learning and assessment.

Dr. Brian Nelson, head of the AZ DELTA lab, focuses on the theory, design, and implementation of computer-based learning environments, focusing on immersive games and virtual worlds for STEM learning. An instructional designer and learning theorist, he has published and presented extensively on the viability of educational virtual environments for situated inquiry learning and assessment.
