In this paper, the author has described a research methodology for college course improvement, and applied the results to education course classes. Generally speaking, it is quite hard to carry out research on college course improvements, because faculties cannot introduce experimental design approaches based on control and treatment groups of real students in real settings. Under the situation, however, the author followed a Design Based Research (DBR) approach proposed by Reeves and other researchers, revising the DBR to apply to college course levels with special conditions. The revised DBR was applied to both "Instructional Methodology" and "Educational Technology" that are compulsory in the teacher-training course. Resulting in the clarification of effective and ineffective instructional activities, which were then classified into common activities seen in both courses, and particular activities seen in only one course, respectively. The author concludes that this revised DBR is a practical and powerful method for improving regular college courses.
