Teaching as a Design Science
The focus of this book is on how the work of teaching has become one of design, similar to other design professions (such as architects). Teachers must use evidence-based techniques for improving their practice, but teachers often do not share their learnings and the pedagogical patterns they create, which is necessary for evidence-based improvements.
