Abstract

Research on factors affecting curriculum implementation has pointed to the importance of involving teachers, to varying degrees, in shaping the learning scenarios in their own classrooms. While the benefits of Teachers as Designers (TaD) are acknowledged in literature, far less is known about ways of shaping that involvement to yield those benefits. Research is needed to understand how teachers learn through design, how such activities may be supported, and how teacher involvement in design partnerships with researchers impacts the quality of the artefacts created, their implementation, and ultimately, student learning. This workshop speaks to that need by bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in further exploring various TaD aspects.
