EDIT 9990 - Spring 2006
Doctoral Topical Seminar on Design-Based Research
You will make a significant contribution to an electronic
performance support system (EPSS) for design-based research.
Design-based research is a relatively recent development in the context of educational research. Many educators are unfamiliar with the concept of design-based research and will need assistance if they want to engage in this approach to educational inquiry. An electronic performance support system (EPSS) is one means of providing the assistance that today's educational researchers inevitably require to get started and maintain a design-based research agenda. An EPSS provides online access to information, guidance, tools, templates, decision-support, examples, and other forms of help needed to perform a task.
from the University of Wollongong, Ron Oliver from Edith
Cowan University, and Tom
Reeves from the University of Georgia are collaborating to develop
EPSS for Design-Based Research. Other collaborators in this
initiative include Jan
van den Akker, Nienke
Nieveen, and Susan
McKenney from the University of Twente as well as Chandra Orrill from the
University of Georgia. Whatever we develop in this seminar is intended
to become a component of this resource.
Several websites provide basic information about EPSS:
This task is worth 50 points. The assessment rubric for this task will be developed by the seminar participants.
