This symposium brings together scholars from the international Knowledge Building community to advance an emerging line of research that aims to strengthen infrastructures for Knowledge Building and tell the "untold stories" of infrastructuring activities that are key for implementing and sustaining Knowledge Building in various contexts. Infrastructuring as a practice in design-based research (Penuel, 2019) moves away from static views of infrastructure and acknowledges the hidden processes of (re)designing infrastructures. For innovations like Knowledge Building, illuminating the process of infrastructuring would shift the focus from learning outcomes, pedagogical strategies, and technological designs to include the larger system that constrains and gives meaning to these components of work and to yet-to-be developed systems to advance knowledge for public good.
