Design-based Implementation Research: What we need for CS10K and ECEP

May 30, 2013 at 1:01 am 3 comments

This caught my eye as something that we really need to push computing education.  For CS10K to be successful, we need a mesh of education research with public policy work.  That’s what ECEP is about. In particular, this kind of multiple stakeholders work is what I think that the U. Chicago Landscape Study is pointing toward.

“Design-Based Implementation Research applies design-based perspectives and methods to address and study problems of implementation…DBIR challenges education researchers to break down barriers between sub-disciplines of educational research that isolate those who design and study innovations within classrooms from those who study the diffusion of innovations.”

From the Introduction to the forthcoming NSSE Yearbook, Design-Based Implementation Research: Theories, methods, and exemplars.

This web site presents resources related to an emerging model of research and development called Design-Based Implementation Research (DBIR). DBIR has four key principles:

  1. a focus on persistent problems of practice from multiple stakeholders’ perspectives
  2. a commitment to iterative, collaborative design
  3. a concern with developing theory related to both classroom learning and implementation through systematic inquiry
  4. a concern with developing capacity for sustaining change in systems

    How does this differ from Educational Design Research? The outcomes are very similar.

      The difference seems to be the subject of attention. Educational design research is focused on the student learning, while DBIR is also focused on the school systems, teachers, and public policy which are key to educational change.

    I attended this AERA session, and found that DBIR seems to be a great fit to evaluate and understand initiatives as they move toward scale. George Veletsianos and I will be writing about our Project Engage CS-education initiative within the scope of this framework in the near future.
