Abstract: As a distinct genre of educational research, design-based research (DBR) is especially appropriate for advancing the state-of-the-art of computer-assisted language learning (CALL). Since its emergence two decades ago, DBR has become increasingly adopted by educational researchers working in educational technology, the learning sciences, and several other areas. A few researchers have pioneered the application DBR in CALL, but there is a need for much more research of this kind across the CALL community. The paper describes the rationale for DBR in CALL, but cautions prospective adopters to be prepared for unexpected challenges as they seek to accomplish three important outcomes of this research genre: 1) effective intervention(s), 2) enhanced theoretical knowledge, and 3) professional development.
