                             Overview of DBR



• Driven by problems of practice
   – Research of and for practice, not research to practice.
   – Collaborative research with practitioners
• Goals
   – Implement innovative designs for learning in practical settings
   – Use these designs as contexts for research on teaching and
     learning
• Method to link observed outcomes to processes of enactment
• Assumes that local context profoundly impacts implementation
   – Places limits on generalization of findings
Designs embody conjectures of learning
A learning environment for biology
Mapping the embodied conjecture

               Timescales of design-based research




•   Micro-cycles of analysis during implementation
•   Macro-cycles of retrospective analysis
