Design-based research (DBR), with the design experiment as its main practical method, can be characterised as an inter-disciplinary ‘mixed-method’ research approach conducted ‘in the field’ that serves applied, as well as theory-building purposes.
Substantial progress has been made over past years in articulating the methodological and epistemological basis for DBR and in developing it into a teachable method.
This lecture will delineate these lines of development, provide a short overview of how a prototypical design study is conducted, and identify the notions of design and design methods as in need for further conceptual development and integration with the methodological foundation.
