Design-based implementation research seminar and workshop with Bill Penuel

14 November 2017Register online for workshop

A special event hosted by the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI).

This free seminar and workshop, arranged especially by the CRLI, features international guest Professor Bill Penuel. Prospective attendees should note that the workshop, which follows immediately after the seminar, is being held in a different room in the Education Building, and registrations for the workshop are essential because places are limited.

Seminar: From a few classrooms to many – expanding design research to support organisational change

Room 424 | 10am–11am | No registration required
Design-based research involves the iterative design and testing of innovative models for supporting learning in classrooms. Historically, researchers have conducted design studies in a small number of classrooms and focused on carefully documenting interactions with tasks, tools and people that contribute to learning goals. Today’s demands for organisation-level improvement in teaching and learning in schools and universities requires expanding design research to address problems as defined by multiple stakeholders and to learn from innovation implementation across many classrooms. Design-based implementation research (DBIR) is an approach to design-based research that employs collaborative design and theories with methods from policy and organisational research to develop and test innovations at scale. This talk will present the core principles of DBIR and an illustration of its principles as applied to the design and implementation of a project-based secondary-education biology curriculum across schools in a large urban school system in the US. It presents DBIR as an extension of design research that is well positioned to address problems of scale and sustainability.

Workshop: Organising collaborative design teams in DBIR

Room 618 | 11am–1pm | Online registration
Design-based implementation research (DBIR) is an approach to design-based research that employs collaborative design and theories with methods from policy and organisational research to develop and test innovations at scale. In this workshop, participants will gain practice with tools and techniques for organising collaborative design teams to study and design solutions to problems in their educational setting. Participants will investigate tools used for launching a collaborative-design process with educators to design curriculum innovations. Participants will also explore strategies for using evidence from implementation to inform iterations to designs. Finally, participants will have a chance to work individually or in teams to decide how the tools and processes might support their own work to promote organisational change. There will also be the opportunity to discuss how the DBIR approach might be purposefully applied to assess the effectiveness of teaching and curriculum innovation introduced across a program or organisational unit.

  • Speaker: Bill Penuel is Professor of Educational Psychology & Learning Sciences at the
    University of Colorado, Boulder, and Director, Learning Sciences and Human Development, at the National Center for Research in Policy and Practice. Professor Penuel began his career in the field of youth development, developing expertise in program development and evaluation. As Director of Evaluation Research at the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, Professor Penuel developed a broad program of education research in STEM education. During his 13 years there, he conducted a variety of design, assessment, and evaluation research studies and developed expertise in educational technologies, classroom assessment, implementation research, and large-scale cluster randomised trials of educational innovations. Professor Penuel’s current research focuses on teacher learning and organisational processes that shape the implementation of educational policies, school curricula, and after-school programs. He examines learning and development from sociocultural, social capital, and complex social systems perspectives. His teaching interests focus on research methodologies for the learning sciences, adolescent development, and educational technology. He recently developed a new unit of study for the University of Colorado, Boulder, entitled Learning with Technology in and out of School.
