Where is the human
in tech design?
DERC conducts human-centred research of data and digital transformations
We work with students, communities, governmental, nonprofit and corporate partners.
Our researchers explore how humans feel, create, respond, and engage with digital technologies.
We study everyday lived experience, the future of work, creative youth practices, tech policies, tech design, digital literacy and a range of other human-centred design propositions.
Hosted by RMIT in Melbourne, Australia, DERC offers world class training ground and expertise for both small and largescale research initiatives. We are ranked as one of the top two research Centres in Australia focused on the social impact of digital media.
