How do you
do rigorous study on an intervention that doesn’t yet exist or is in
development? In this mini-workshop, Dr Hoadley will go over the principles of
design-based research methods (sometimes called design experiments), which are
typically used when studying new, potentially transformative educational or
social interventions. Design-based research is particularly useful when
interventions are implementation- and context-sensitive; when the interventions
are still being developed or may not be fully specified by theory; and when
ecological validity is important, making controlled experimentation impractical
or nonsensical. We will talk about the strengths and weaknesses of inferences
drawn from DBRM vs. other methods, and some of the practical challenges of
doing DBRM.

workshop is intended for researchers interested in design-based research, and
participants are encouraged to raise issues they encounter in their own DBR.

About the speaker(s):

<p>Dr Chris
Hoadley is currently Associate Professor of Educational Technology at the
Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Education of the New York
University. Dr Hoadley designs, builds, and studies ways for computers to
enhance collaboration and learning. Currently his research focuses on
collaborative technologies and computer support for cooperative learning
(CSCL). Hoadley is the director of dolcelab, the Laboratory for Design Of
Learning, Collaboration &amp; Experience. He is an affiliate scholar for the
National Academy of Engineering&rsquo;s Center for the Advancement of Scholarship in
Engineering Education (CASEE) and was awarded a Fulbright for 2008-2009 in the
South Asia Regional program to study educational technologies for
sustainability and empowerment in rural Himalayan villages. Other interests
include research on and through design, systems for supporting social capital
and distributed intelligence, the role of informatics and digital libraries in
education, and science and engineering education. Hoadley previously chaired
the American Educational Research Association&rsquo;s Special Interest Group for
Education in Science and Technology (now SIG: Learning Sciences), and served as
the first president of the International Society for the Learning Sciences.
Hoadley earned his baccalaureate in cognitive science from MIT, and a masters
in computer science and doctorate in education from UC Berkeley. He previously
taught at Stanford University, Mills College, and Penn State University in
education, computer science, and information sciences.</p>
