Van Horne, Shutt, Vye& Bransford - Enactment of Inquiry Processes to Support Student Participation in Authentic Science Practices


Design Research Partnerships

Principle: Partnership Stance & Capacity

  • Researchers and practitioners needed to be receptive to and capable of engaging in a deep R&D partnership
    • District staff had collaborative R&D stancewith multiple projects underway; one district person was a UW alum
    • Researchers had previously engaged in a range of similar efforts with groups of teachers and other districts
    • Policy Implication: Need to build human capacity for this kind of partnership work—as an alternative to the research-to-practice model. We should incentivize partnership work and ask R+P teams to justify the work in terms of joint problem identification.

Design Research Partnerships

Principle: Mutually-Beneficial Practices that Leverage Distributed Expertise

  • This is a sustained, ‘project-focused’ collaboration between university researchers and district practitioners in its 7th year.
  • We actively manage it to be mutually-beneficial through shared governance (e.g., Co-PIs), institutional subcontracts, and detailed coordination of the work (e.g., around research goals & design / implementation strategies)—while leveraging and building team expertise
  • Policy Implication: As intensive, soft money efforts, design research partnerships need sustained ‘project’ funding; networking opportunities with other similar efforts and interested networks would benefit & expand the work

Design Research Partnerships

Principle: Continuous Improvement on Broad Issues within Local Circumstances

  • Within educational improvement efforts, the work is focused on identifying and working through local ‘problems of educational practice’ through iterative cycles of design, implementation & analysis (e.g., how does learner choice influence learning)
  • Tools, approaches, and findings are broadly applicable but are locally constrained to fit the district context (culture, infrastructure, routines)
  • Policy Implication: Focus more on how the resulting tools (as they travel) can be productively adapted to local use in a range of contexts—and less on demonstrating that specific approaches work in a given research study context

Four Themes of Work

Developing teacher-researcher partnerships to investigate problems of practice and develop useful instructional strategies and tools that can be shared broadly.
