Designing for Global Data Sharing, Designing for Educational Transformation
Adams, Robin S.; Radcliffe, David; Fosmire, Michael
Advances in Engineering Education, v5 n2 Spr 2016
This paper provides an example of a global data sharing project with an educational transformation agenda. This agenda shaped both the design of the shared dataset and the experience of sharing the common dataset to support multiple perspective inquiry and enable integrative and critically reflexive research-to-practice dialogue. The shared dataset contains multiple disciplinary instances of "design review conversations"--digital videos of conversations between those who give and those who receive feedback, guidance, critique, or mentoring during a design review event. International design researchers were invited to apply their expertise to the dataset and participate face-to-face in a multi-day symposium for catalyzing conversations connecting design thinking, teaching, and learning. In this paper we describe this data sharing project, highlighting (1) the principles that guided the design of the shared dataset; (2) challenges encountered with implementing the project; and (3) the approach for broadening the dataset experience from sharing to enabling learning partnerships. We conclude with insights from this experience for improving methodologies for global data sharing and designing data sharing for educational transformation.
