Season school: EDUCATIONAL DESIGN RESEARCH

Call for participation

Educational Design Research as a Means to
Strengthen Relationships between Curriculum
Research, Practice and Policy

Timing and location
Four-day event: 5th - 8th November 2013 at the University of Jaen, Spain

Attendees
The season school is aimed at
- Doctoral/master students and early career
curriculum/mathematics & science education
researchers;
- Curriculum professionals with research
involvements within member institutions of CIDREE
(Consortium of Institutions for Development and
Research of Education in Europe) and EERA
(European Educational Research Association).

The season school offers the participants a forum
to deepen their research skills and extend their
perspectives concerning the relevance of their
research efforts and extend their networking.

Introduction to the theme
The essence of this season school is to
strengthen the relationships between curriculum
research (in general and in mathematics & science
education more specifically), policy and
practice. One of the major recommendations from
the literature to improve the relevance of
curriculum research is to make sure that research
efforts relate to policy agendas of a country and
to concerns in school practice. Curriculum
research can play different roles in doing so: it
can assist in signaling and interpreting
curriculum issues (via monitoring and trend
analysis); it can help to solve these issues (via
curriculum design research/design-based research,
DBR); and it can support the implementation and
scaling of curriculum change efforts (via
implementation and impact studies). In this
season school we address the need for capacity
building activities, especially in the planning
and performing of curricular design research
activities.

Aims and activities of the spring school
The season school aims at introducing curricular
design research/DBR and at having hands-on
experience connected to the work of the
participants. The season school will consist of a
combination of presentations by keynote speakers,
activities in small working groups, and
individual guidance. Issues and activities will
be illustrated by examples from recent design
research practices/studies and will be supported
by tools and coaching on the spot. The following
questions will be dealt with:
o What are key characteristics of curricular design research?
o How does curricular design research promote
and realize the connections between curriculum
research, policy and practice (e.g. in
mathematics & science education)?
o What does a curricular design research trajectory look like?
o Who needs to be involved, and what are the specific roles?
o How do you plan and perform curricular design
research (e.g. in mathematics & science
education)?
o How do you deal with reliability and validity
issues in curricular design research?
o How do you present the results to other
researchers, educational policy makers and
practice?

Overall programme of season school
Keynote presentations (45 minutes each) + referent (15 minutes)
Whilst Keynote 1 will introduce participants to
design research/DBR from the research
perspective, Keynotes 2 to 5 speakers will
introduce and illustrate an additional
layer/perspective to the discussion (policy-,
practice- and subject curriculum-related) and
will coin a subset of statements and questions.
After each keynote, a referent will react on the
keynote and will raise some additional issues.
Then, the statements and questions raised by the
keynote speaker and referent will be discussed in
small working groups and results will be
collected. In this way participants will work
towards a list of recommendations for increasing
the relevance of curriculum research in general
and, more specifically, concerning their
individual research activities.

does it mean to take a design research/DBR
