Design Inquiry of Learning – between LX Design and Educational Design Research
LX design is a powerful emerging paradigm for professional practice in education. Likewise, Educational Design Research (EDR), aslo known as Design Based Research (DBR) is a powerful emerging paradigm for the scientific study and development of educational innovations. Despite the common theme of design, communication between these approaches is lacking; LX design often lacks scientific rigor, while EDR falls short in practical applicatability. The concept of Design Inquiry of Learning trys to bridge the two approaches, and at the same time offer a novel approach to the education of educational practitioners. Design Inquiry of Learning is the basis for the Learning Design Studio methodology, which has been successfully implemented in several MOOCs, courses, and multiple workshops.
