The Problem - There is often a difficult and confusing gap between graduate school and beginning professional practice. After spending years in the culture of schooling, new graduates can find the challenges of the workplace baffling and stressful. University educators have begun to address this, forging links between the classroom and the "real" world. While many of these studies are exploratory in nature, Collins (1992) has pointed out that by sharing the results of such "design experiments" can we can begin to found a design science of education.
