Design-based research: Research that makes a difference in education

Herrington, J.ORCID: 0000-0002-9960-4677 (2012) Design-based research: Research that makes a difference in education. In: Western Australian Institute for Educational Research Seminar 2012, 19 September 2012, Murdoch University, Western Australia.


Design-based research (DBR) is a promising approach to finding solutions to significant educational problems that we, as teachers, experience in the classroom. This presentation describes the background to the approach and explores the conduct of design-based research in educational settings. It discusses how DBR can be used by educators in their own educational contexts - including examples from two higher degree students, Jenni Parker and Stuart Duvall - and highlights the importance of sharing our findings through design principles so that other teachers can learn from and apply our results.
