Join us at the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI) on 14th November when Professor Bill Penuel presents on Design-Based Implementation Research (DBIR).

Bill PenuelThis event will start with a seminar (From a Few Classrooms to Many: Expanding Design Research to Support Organizational Change) in room 424. After the seminar will be an optional workshop (Organizing Collaborative Design Teams in DBIR), registration essential. The seminar will be approximately an hour and the workshop approximately two, with a short break for refreshments at the beginning of the workshop.

You can attend either or both of these events. No registration is needed for the seminar. In the case of the workshop, registration is free but essential as places are limited - https://goo.gl/forms/fEWCmM0nRGtUrqr32

Design-Based Implementation Research (DBIR) is an approach to design-based research that employs collaborative design and theories and methods from policy and organizational research to develop and test innovations at scale. In this workshop, participants will gain practice with tools and techniques for organizing collaborative design teams to study and design solutions to problems in their educational setting. Participants will investigate tools used for launching a collaborative design process with educators to design curriculum innovations. Participants will also explore strategies for using evidence from implementation to inform iterations to designs. Finally, participants will have a chance to work individually or in teams to decide how the tools and processes might support their own work to promote organizational change. There will also be the opportunity to discuss how the DBIR approach might be purposefully applied to assess the effectiveness of teaching and curriculum innovation introduced across a program or organizational unit.

BIO

Bill Penuel is Professor of Educational Psychology & Learning Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder, and Director of LSHD: Learning Sciences & Human Development at the National Center for Research in Policy and Practice.

Professor Penuel began his career in the field of youth development, developing expertise in program development and evaluation. As Director of Evaluation Research at the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, Professor Penuel developed a broad program of education research in STEM education. During his thirteen years there, he conducted a variety of design, assessment, and evaluation research studies and developed expertise in educational technologies, classroom assessment, implementation research, and large-scale cluster randomized trials of educational innovations.

Professor Penuel’s current research focuses on teacher learning and organizational processes that shape the implementation of educational policies, school curricula, and afterschool programs. He examines learning and development from sociocultural, social capital, and complex social systems perspectives. His teaching interests focus on research methodologies for the learning sciences, adolescent development, and educational technology. He recently developed a new course for the Education Minor called Learning with Technology in and out of School.
