  • 1 Freudenthal Institute, Netherlands

In light of anticipated changes in mathematics education, an alternative for the well-known “research-development-diffusion” model is presented. It is based on an integration of curriculum research and design embedded in “educational development.” In this context curriculum development is described as purposeful and sensible tinkering. It is argued that the theory production implied in this process may be exploited in “developmental research.” However, developmental research is not yet well established as a research discipline. The core of this article is an effort to explicate the characteristics of developmental research and to discuss its methodological aspects.
