Design-based research as a “smart” methodology for studying learning in the context of work

  title={Design-based research as a “smart” methodology for studying learning in the context of work},
  author={Ditte Kolb{\ae}k},
Although Design-based Research (DBR) was developed for investigating class-room training this paper discusses methodological issues when DBR is employed for investigating learning in the context of work, as it is an authentic learning environment, a real-world setting for fostering learning and creating usable knowledge and knowing. The purpose of this paper is to provide new perspectives on DBR regarding how to conduct DBR for studying learning from experience in the context of work. The…

Design-based research (DBR) that blends designing learning environments and developing theories has proliferated in recent years. In order to gain insights into DBR, 162 studies related to DBR

Design-based research and technology-enhanced learning environments

The importance of design- based research for the development of TELEs is described, principles for implementing design-based research withTELEs are proposed, and future challenges of using this methodology are discussed.

Design experiments: Theoretical and methodological challenges in creating complex interventions in c

The lion's share of my current research program is devoted to the study of learning in the blooming, buzzing confusion of inner-city classrooms, and central to the enterprise is that the classroom must function smoothly as a learning environment before the authors can study anything other than the myriad possible ways that things can go wrong.
