Over a decade ago the concept of "design experiments" was introduced because of the belief that many of questions could not be adequately addressed by laboratory-based experiments. Since then, design-based research as a term has grown in popularity and significance. The core manuscripts of this special issue respond to the questions: What constitutes design-based research? Why is it important? What are the methods to carry it out? At the end of this issue, two strong commentaries situate this work and challenge the community with new questions and issues that must be answered if design-based research is going to help advance work in ways that others judge as worthwhile and significant.

The purpose of this volume is to expand and refine our understanding of the use of design-based research (DBR) in CALL by contributing to the growing body of literature in this area. We have tried to strike a balance between theoretical considerations and concrete examples of DBR.The first section of this volume focuses on theoretical perspectives and ideas that can inform the use of DBR in CALL. The second section contains studies that illustrate DBR through concrete instances of its operationalization.

Numerous studies indicate that team competencies, based on effective virtual and face-to-face communication, are a key factor for successful IT project work. The major goal of this book is to investigate the influence of person-centered interventions in technology-enhanced environments on the development of team knowledge, skills and attitudes. A further aim is to improve the understanding of teamwork and associated media use in the Computer Science and Information Systems studies. Finally, the book draws up general concepts referring to ways of supporting teamwork and promoting team competencies of students in the context of Computer Science and Information Systems curricula.

Beginning and well-seasoned researchers alike face significant challenges in understanding the complexities of research designs arising from both within and across methodological paradigms, and in applying them in ways that maximise impact on knowledge, practice, and policy. This volume engages educational and social researchers in a scholarly debate offering some crucial re-interpretations of established research methodologies in light of contemporary conditions and critical introduction to some contemporary research approaches yet to gain general recognition. This book is a contemporary vademecum for researchers, practitioners and graduate students on research methodologies and designs for educational and social change in today’s world. The chapters chart and analyse the conceptual and practical complexities of a variety research designs for contemporary educational and social work research. This anthology, taken overall, provides readers with the knowledge and understanding needed not only to design technically sound and coherent research studies, but also to develop methodologically innovative research projects that cross the boundaries between different methodological traditions to the benefit of scholarship, policy, and practice. The chapters cover nine research approaches: - Design-based research - Action research - Ethnomethodological research - Negotiated ethnography - Arts-informed research - Historical analysis and postcolonial scholarship - Policy analysis - Comparative research - Quantitative modelling of correlational and multi-level data The book provides a critical discussion of epistemological questions and methodological frontiers: - Knowledge and epistemology in scholarship, practice and policy - Digital knowledge and digital research - Emerging methodological challenges for educational research - Challenges and futures for social work and social policy research methods - Methodology and the knowledge industry

Im Sinne forschungsmethodischer Triangulation und in Orientierung an Mixed-Model-Designs finden sich in der empirischen Bildungsforschung seit einigen Jahren vermehrt Studien, die eine Kombination qualitativer und quantitativer Instrumente und Analysen im Sinne eines gemeinsamen Forschungsansatzes realisieren. Vor diesem Hintergrund wurden im Rahmen der 74. Tagung der Arbeitsgruppe für Empirische Pädagogische Forschung (AEPF) 2010 in Jena zentrale methodologische Fragen und vielfältige empirische Studien präsentiert und diskutiert. Der vorliegende Band greift diese Diskussion auf und spannt einen exemplarischen Bogen von den forschungsmethodischen Grundlagen und Perspektiven bis hin zu konkreten Anwendungsbeispielen aus der empirischen Schul- und Unterrichtsforschung sowie der Lehrerbildungsforschung. Über den Autor: Michaela Gläser-Zikuda ist Professorin für Schulpädagogik und Allgemeine Didaktik an der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. Dr. Carsten Rohlfs ist Professor in Vertretung am Lehrstuhl für Schulpädagogik und Schulentwicklung am Institut für Erziehungswissenschaft der Fakultät für Sozial- und Verhaltenswissenschaften an der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena.
