Design and Development Research: Methods, Strategies, and Issues
Qualitative research: an emerging paradigm for design-based research strategies for studying situated issues and strategies in the design and development of using qualitative research methods in engineering design. Expand
Design and Development Research
This chapter focuses on design and development research, a type of inquiry unique to the instructional design and technology field dedicated to the creation of new knowledge and the validation ofExpand
The Impact of Scaffolding and Student Achievement Levels in a Problem-based Learning Environment
This study examined how scaffolds and student achievement levels influence inquiry and performance in a problem-based learning environment. The scaffolds were embedded within a hypermedia programExpand
The field of instructional technology has traditionally involved a unique blend of theory and practice. This blend is most obvious in developmental research, those studies that involve the productionExpand
Type of Positive Interdependence and Affiliation Motive in an Asynchronous, Collaborative Learning Environment
In this study, we investigated the effect of type of positive interdependence (roles, rewards, roles-plus-rewards, or no structure) and affiliation motives (high vs. low) in an asynchronous,Expand
Developmental research methods: Creating knowledge from instructional design and development practice
This article describes developmental research in terms of the traditional stages of planning, conducting, and reporting a research project—problem definition, literature reviews, and research procedures. Expand
The Instructional Design Knowledge Base: Theory, Research, and Practice
The dimensions of an Instructional Design Knowledge Base and a Taxonomy of the ID Knowledge Base Glossary of Terms References are presented. Expand
Computer-mediated instruction: a comparison of online and face-to-face collaboration
Findings suggest that both virtual and face-to-face collaboration can be effective in achieving learning goals, however, consideration should be given to the collaborative structure of the lesson and the type of task in the design of CMC environments. Expand
Control of Practice and Level of Feedback in Computer-Based Instruction
This study investigated the effect of type of control and level of feedback during computer-based instruction. Subjects completed a computer lesson about the microscope that presented eitherExpand
The effects of search tool type and cognitive style on performance during hypermedia database searches
Results revealed a significant interaction between search tool and cognitive style, and field-independent learners performed significantly better than field-dependent learners under the index/find and map treatments. Expand
