Prof Lisa Grocott VICArt Design & Architecture Monash University
Lisa was once a communication designer (Studio Anybody), then design academic (RMIT), then a transdisciplinary researcher (Parsons) and incidentally now a Professor (Monash)… but mostly she tries to avoid finding a name for what she does. After being at Parsons in New York for the past 12 years she has returned to Melbourne as the Head of Design at Monash. She is most excited about WonderLab a new co-design research lab that operates at the nexus between design, learning and play. In WonderLab her applied research takes a transdisciplinary approach to transforming behavior as it applies to teacher change, academic mindsets and learning organizations. Most recently Lisa is exploring transforming mindsets as chief investigator on an ARC Linkage on Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change.
