“Why DBR? This book with chapters by experienced researchers in the field will guide you through all you need to know about this growing methodology in one place. Chapters cover what DBR is, how to do it, and specific applications. This book is suitable and informative for those just being introduced to the field, as well as for those of us who have been using DBR for years.”

—Diane Jass Ketelhut, EdD, Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership, University of Maryland, College Park

“Is it worth reading an entire book on a single research methodology? Absolutely. DBR merits extended attention given its versatility, its complexity, and, especially, its potential to bridge the notorious gap between research and practice. The book offers concrete, accessible guidance on the process of conducting DBR and shares examples of findings from DBR investigations in a range of educational domains and contexts. Graduate students will particularly appreciate the chapter on writing a DBR dissertation, and all readers will be inspired to include this approach in their methodological repertoires.”

—Nell K. Duke, EdD, Literacy, Language, and Culture concentration and the Combined Program in Education and Psychology, University of Michigan

“DBR in authentic contexts is a crucial activity for scholars who wish to overcome the global challenges in education that we now confront. This important book describes the contributions of DBR to the planning and development of effective collaborative research in schools—a crucial stage in the continuum from early pilot studies to randomized clinical trials. The volume provides important insights for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers.”

—Chris Dede, EdD, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard Graduate School of Education

“This book pairs thorough discussions of what DBR is with detailed, informative descriptions of a variety of DBR projects. The power of DBR lies in its focus on research projects that have real-world impact. This book shows how to involve teachers as professional collaborators and carry out design experiments in naturalistic settings.”

—Koeno Gravemeijer, PhD, School of Education (Emeritus), Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

“Having taught a doctoral-level DBR course multiple times, I am delighted to finally see an edited volume that discusses the charms and challenges of the approach and shows what DBR looks like in a variety of content areas and contexts. This book will be of value to researchers hoping to learn more about DBR, those who are already engaged in it and seek to disseminate their work, and those looking for support in furthering the method in the field of education.”

—Jacquelynn A. Malloy, PhD, Department of Teaching and Learning, Clemson University
