Title: Studying educational design: The underexplored tipping point
Lead Author: Schunn, Christian D
Abstract: We have an educational environment that is failing more students than it supports. We have increasing divisions across levels of social and behavioral sciences, which narrows the range of transfer of theories and methods. New theoretical and methodological combinations across previously unconnected disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences can produce massive growth in basic scientific theories and practical applications. However, interdisciplinary collaboration requires bridging goals, values, and language differences. Educational design, the process by which educational materials, programs, processes, and policies are (re)designed and developed, has received little prior attention from any research community. We argue that educational design is a critical, rich, but sufficiently focused topic that can serve as a multi-level integrator of the social and behavioral sciences. Such integration could have transformative effects on these sciences as well as on educational environments in the US.
