William R. Penuel: Design-Based Implementation Research: A Strategic Approach to Scaling and Sustaining Educational Innovation in Research-Practice Partnerships

There is growing interest in promoting evidence-based policymaking within government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels to support scaling and sustaining innovations. Design-Based Implementation Research is an approach to developing and using evidence that can inform the iterative refinement and improvement of innovations in complex educational systems and community ecologies. It's principled approach requires the institutional and personal trust and support of long-term research-practice partnerships in which educators work in partnership with researchers and other education stakeholders to succeed. I will present an example of a DBIR initiative to develop and test a new high school biology curriculum to illustrate the potential and challenges of DBIR.
