Reinventing Learning: A Design-Research Odyssey
Abrahamson, Dor
ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, v47 n6 p1013-1026 Oct 2015
Design research is a broad, practice-based approach to investigating problems of education. This approach can catalyze the development of learning theory by fostering opportunities for transformational change in scholars' interpretation of instructional interactions. Surveying a succession of design-research projects, I explain how challenges in understanding students' behaviors promoted my own recapitulation of a historical evolution in educators' conceptualizations of learning--Romantic, Progressivist, and Synthetic (Schön, Intuitive thinking? A metaphor underlying some ideas of educational reform (working paper 8). Division for Study and Research in Education, MIT, Cambridge, 1981)--and beyond to a proposed Systemic view. In reflection, I consider methodological adaptations to design-research practice that may enhance its contributions in accord with its objectives.
