Methodology Workshop

Wednesday 29 May, 2019, 12.30 – 5.30pm (includes lunch)

CITED Methodology Workshop: An Introduction to Design-Based Implementation Research


Prof. Bill Penuel, University of Colorado Boulder

Waterloo Bridge Wing, Franklin-Wilkins Building, Room G8

There is growing interest in promoting evidence-based policymaking within government agencies at national, regional 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. Its 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. In this workshop, Prof. Bill Penuel (University of Colorado, Boulder) 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 in action.

Currently, this workshop is the only one of its type with Prof. Penuel that is planned in the UK this year.

Workshop facilitator

William R. Penuel is Professor of Learning Sciences and Human Development in the School of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder, US. His current research examines conditions needed to implement rigorous, responsive, and equitable teaching practices in STEM education. With colleagues from across the country, he is developing and testing new models for supporting implementation through long-term partnerships between educators and researchers. Currently, he has partnerships with large school districts and a national association of state science coordinators in the US and is currently Principal Investigator for the National Center for Research in Policy and Practice (, which is focused on how school and district leaders use research. He is one of the developers of an approach to improvement research called Design-Based Implementation Research (
