Providing an accessible background to the methodological approaches used in design research as well as addressing all the potential issues that early career researchers will encounter, the book uniquely helps the early career researcher to gain a full overview of design research and the practical skills needed to get their project off the ground. Based on extensive experience, the book also contains multiple examples of design research from both undergraduate and postgraduate students, to demonstrate possible projects to the reader.

With easy to follow chapters and accessible question and response sections, Design Research in Education contains practical advice on a wide range of topics related to design research projects including:

The theory of design research, what it entails, and when it is suitable

Arthur Bakker's clear logic helps to cut through the many questions and confusions that persist about DBR. This book offers an invaluable contribution to the literature by making DBR more accessible to research students and their supervisors.

Rupert Wegerif, Professor of Education at the University of Cambridge

This book offers not only clear guidance about essentials of design research for novices, but also stimulating food for thought for experienced colleagues.

Jan Van den Akker, Professor Emeritus at the University of Twente, Netherlands; former Director of SLO, Netherlands institute for Curriculum Development

Arthur is a careful and thorough researcher who writes clearly. In writing his book, he interviewed leading DBR researchers and scholars and shared draft chapters for feedback. I was honored to be one of them. I recommend it for your consideration.

David Reinking, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Language and Literacy at the University of Georgia
