Penuel, W. R., Fishman, B. J., & Cheng, B. (2011). Developing the area of design-based implementation research. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.
This paper provides an overview of the background and purposes of our workshop on design-based implementation research. The paper is intended to orient participants to the need to develop a new area of research that is focused on how to address persistent challenges associated with potentially effective innovations in STEM. At the workshop, participants will hear about and discuss exemplars of design-based implementation research and identify capacities, resources, and infrastructures that are needed to support development of the area.
