The article by Anderson and Shattuck aptly explains the essentials of Design Based research. It highlights the importance of context in design based research. The features stood out as I read the article:

  • DBR is situated in real educational contexts
  • DBR designing and testing a specific intervention
  • Design evolves through creating, testing and refinement ( this is a continuous evolution)
  • Testing is done in authentic situations
  • Design lead to practical design principles and patterns.
