Excited for #dmlcommons Design Based Research Course
Not because I won’t participate in all the activities. That’s a given. This course will never be finished because good design rarely is.
Few tools or spaces ever reach perfection. So I kind of look at formative experiments as always trying to get better.
I hope to build both my know-how and my know-who in terms of design research (I stole this from the Informal Assessment article I have been reading…Spoiler: I think the three part model that Lemke, Lecusay, Cole, & Michalchik propose would be a great methods framework. Tip: Follow and play on the companion blog ).
I am in the very nascent phase of a design research project #Questiontheweb. My intention was to create the materials in the open, then provide PD and activities to teachers, have students network. More on how that’s gonna evolve later.
In fact the updates will come right after you folks help me figure out what to do.
I also want to think about formative design in terms of my work with Gear Up. Gear Up is the ultimate design research project. The goal is simple, change lives. The methods fluid and messy. I wasn’t around to write the last proposal. I will be in 2018.
