Abstract

Professional doctorates tend to use established research approaches such as case study, action research and mixed methods, but they have extended and enlarged upon the approaches, making them more purposeful. Higher education can support developments with its expertise in research, critical thinking and a whole range of pedagogical practices that can be of benefit to individuals and communities outside or on the periphery of higher education networks. For example, approaches to postgraduate training and research activities can include the development of appropriate methodologies for practitioner-led research which addresses highly contextualised knowledge within situated practices.
