Abstract: Many scholars have used a design lens to understand teachers and teacher education. Design is changing an existing situation to a desired one; it is the process of creating something new. The literature on teachers and design is broad and describes many ways of how teachers design. In particular, the push for integrating technology into classrooms has led many to consider how teachers design curriculum and learning experiences. This paper describes a literature review of teachers and design. The authors identified the 40 most-cited publications on teachers and design published from 2007 to 2017. Further analysis revealed ten primary strands of work around teachers and design. The paper describes how the strands are related and what the research reveals about how teachers design learning experiences and uses of educational technology.
