Abstract: In this paper, the authors explore the role of design and design-based research as an alternative research methodology for uncovering principles and strategies for integrating online learning with graduate professional development. Using an abbreviated version of their research journey, the authors demonstrate how design and design-based research informs the dynamic of practice and discovery, situated in a particular educational context. They conclude that innovation, design principles, and theory derive not from discrete research projects or meta-analysis of multiple research studies but from an ongoing set of design events assessed for outcomes, impacts, and insights.
