Researcher working with HEY students in a workshop

Dr. Pacheco Montoya conducts focus groups with students, parents, and teachers after piloting workbooks for the first time in 2017.

Following a human-centered design framework, HEY! was developed using a design-based research (DBR) methodology. DBR is a “methodology designed with and for educators that seeks to increase the impact, transfer, and translation of education research into improved practice” (Anderson & Shattuck, 2012, p.16)
