Action-Oriented Design Research in Doctoral Programs: Developing the Leaders Our School Systems Need

John J. Hall, Robert Crow, Jill A. Perry, Rick Mintrop, Betsy Kean, Debby Zambo

In recent years, several promising design-based approaches have emerged for developing scholar practitioners. This conversation will bring together scholars who use design development studies and improvement science in EdD programs in diverse communities. We will discuss emerging perspectives on these approaches and the affordances and challenges associated with using these approaches as signature pedagogies. Attendees will interact with one another and the panelists in small-group discussions, focusing on critical questions related to these approaches.
