Transcript of Using a Design-Based Research Study to Identify Principles f
to Teach Online
What is this study about?
focused on evaluating a training course for online instructors: MarylandOnline’s Certificate for Online Adjunct Teaching (COAT) course.
COAT is a nine-week, online, instructor-led course that was designed to prepare adjunct faculty to teach their first online course.
study explored the impact of the COAT course on the participants’ later teaching practice.
Design-Based Research (DBR)
Wang and Hannafin (2005) defined DBR as “A systematic but flexible methodology aimed to improve educational practices through iterative analysis, design, development, and implementation, based on collaboration among researchers and practitioners in real-world settings and leading to contextually-sensitive design principles and theories” (pp. 6-7).
This study collected data using online, asynchronous, threaded discussion groups as focus groups to explore the research question using online discussion boards within a learning management system (LMS).
The purposive sample (24/ 179)
Design Research Phases
Principles for Training Instructors
to Teach Online
Training for online instructors should be designed using a situated learning perspective.
Training for online instructors should prepare participants for diverse teaching situations which might include requirements to (re)design online courses and opportunities to teach in emerging learning environments.
Taking COAT influenced subsequent online teaching practice.

improving online practice,
reflecting on personal teaching role as online instructor,
experiencing being an online student,
