Conducting Educational Design Research Workshop #sotelnz #ascilitemlsig #ascilite 18th Feb 2019 with Tom Reeves

#ASCILITEMLSIG, #cmaltcmooc, #mesh360, #sotelnz
Conducting Educational Design Research ​ Educational design research (EDR) addresses two primary goals:  •  improving educational effectiveness in specific practical settings, and  • identifying empirically grounded and sharable design principles and models for enhancing educational effectiveness beyond specific settings.  A third, but nonetheless important goal, is professional development for all participants, both practitioners and researchers. Since its formalization in the early 1990s, EDR (also known as "design-based research" and by several other names) has become increasingly adopted by educational researchers and collaborating practitioners working in fields such as educational technology, the learning sciences, and healthcare education.  EDR goes beyond "action research" by combining the solution of real world practice problems with the search for reusable/replicable intervention design principles. The emphasis in this workshop will be less on the theoretical aspects of EDR and more on the "nuts and bolts"…
