Transformative Teaching Experiments through Conjecture-Driven Research Design.
Confrey, Jere; Lachance, Andrea
This chapter describes a research design model that utilizes both theory and common, core classroom conditions in order to create and investigate new instructional strategies. Transformative and conjecture-driven teaching experiments are introduced which were developed to change and reform current teaching practice. It is suggested that such a design holds much promise for instituting significant positive changes by establishing a better connection between research and practice. (KHR)
