Teaching as a Design Science: Teachers Building, Testing, and Sharing Pedagogic Ideas
Approaching teaching as a design science encourages teacher collaboration, to harness the inquiry that goes on every day in classrooms and channel it into shared knowledge that could benefit the whole community of teachers. This chapter explains what teaching as design science is, why leaders of IT should consider it when implementing IT, and how to put it into practice in their leadership of IT.
