Abstract: Understanding and improving curriculum materials design practices for effective large scale implementation in science Design Dimensions is an NSF-funded project that seeks to improve understanding of practices critical to the design of curricular materials for implementation in a broad range of educational contexts. Researchers from TERC, the Lawrence Hall of Science, and the University of Pittsburgh (as well as the UT, OU and UGent) are collaborating to explore and codify practices that enhance the success of efforts to design K-12 science curriculum materials for large-scale implementation. Overall, we ask the research question: Across phases of design, (analysis, development, and evaluation) what processes and strategies are critical to successfully obtain large scale implementation with significant impacts on learners? The project involves a series of retrospective and live-design practice studies, with both broad and deep orientations. Design dimensions has been underway for 14 months and conclusions are not yet available. This presentation shares the approach to the overall project, it’s constituent sub-studies, and initial findings to date.
