My thesis is an example information systems design research. However, since the aim of the thesis is to develop a design theory for the implementation of e-learning within a university I do have some interest in the design-based research (DBR) literature from the education discipline.

I’m current following a discussion about DBR within education on the ITForum mailing list on which a number of folk are sharing resources, resources I’m not going to be able to read now. The purpose of this post is to save those references so I can perhaps (yea, right) go back and read them at some later stage.
