This concise paper outlines the methodological design of a collaborative Design Based Research (DBR) project. The project involves a collaborative transdisciplinary team of educational researchers, practitioners, student designers, and the Auckland Hospital Design Lab in the design of innovative technology enhanced solutions that positively enhance health care practitioner and patient experiences. Using Design Based Research, the project explores real world problems in health care to design and evaluate prototype solutions. The goal is the development of design principles for innovative learning environments that facilitate student-determined learning in real world scenarios.
