Design Based Implementation Research

Announcing ICLS 2016 Workshop on Organizing Design-Based Implementation Research in Research-Practice Partnerships

February 21, 2016

DBIR is going to Singapore this summer! We have an international faculty that will lead a one-day workshop at ICLS 2016 in Singapore this June.

This workshop is for researchers and educators at all career stages interested in partnerships with educators to advance both learning theory and practice. The focus will be on organizing the design process to be equitable and promote the agency of educators at different levels of systems and on conducting design research inside a research-practice partnership. Members of research groups from three different regions of North America and Europe will offer cross-national perspectives on designing with educational organizations and will engage participants directly in curating resources teams can use to organize research and development efforts in partnerships.

The workshop will accommodate up to 40 participants, selected through a simple application process in which participants describe:

  • Reasons for wanting to participate in the workshop
  • Any past experience in research-practice partnerships
  • Any tools or practices they use in partnerships, and if so, what they would be willing to share

Participants need not have experience working in research-practice partnerships to benefit. This workshop is organized for researchers and practitioners who are interested in collaborative design within research-practice partnerships to advance both learning theory and practice. Doctoral students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career scholars are especially encouraged to apply. We also encourage practitioners attending the conference either as partners of researchers or as individuals to participate.
