About Us

Education Design Lab (“The Lab”) is a national nonprofit that designs, tests, and implements unique education models and credentials that address the rapidly changing economy and emerging technology opportunities to ensure equitable outcomes for learners and earners. The Lab has partnered with some of the most aspirational institutions, and often their ecosystem partners, as they consider how to design their offerings to serve learners flexibly with more data-driven, human-centered models, processes, and tools. Our biggest areas of work include improved career pathway visibility, micro-pathways, 21st-century skills, micro-credentials, alternative on-ramps to a degree, upskilling workers, and training college leadership teams in change management and agile prototyping. 


The Lab is unlike other organizations in the nonprofit education space. We are boundary spanners and work across disciplines and alongside schools, employers, entrepreneurs, government, foundations, nonprofits, and innovators. We are known for our work on the ground and have significant experience managing national and local learning cohorts, working with organizations such as Ascendium, The Lumina Foundation, the Gates Foundation, the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), Walmart, American Council on Education, and the ECMC Foundation. To learn more about the work we do and what we care about, visit, and follow us on Twitter @eddesignlab.
