Educational design research is a pragmatic approach to research with the dual goals of (1) solving and educational design problem in a real-world context, and (2) contributing to scholarly knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the epistemological foundations of design-based research. In this paper, the author examines the literature to answer the following questions: (1) what are the historical roots of educational design research, (2) what are the philosophical underpinnings of educational design research, (3) what are the goals of educational design research, (4) what constitutes new knowledge in educational design research, (5) what are the necessary stages of inquire in educational design research, and (6) what is the methodology of educational design research. The author presents a new perspective on the chain of inquiry for educational design research.
