Learn how CAST is applying an innovative research paradigm called Educational User Experience Design (EdUX) to develop technologies to understand and support teacher learning and instructional needs. EdUX offers a collaborative approach to education research—an approach that acknowledges the valuable perspectives and experiences practitioners bring to the research process by empowering practitioners as co-researchers. This approach is not only changing the way researchers work with practitioners but can also be used by practitioners to improve their practice.
