Abstract

Research as anorganized scholarly activity is a powerful tool that can inform policy and governance. Policy and programing in most countries is supported by research and although not always visible, that research plays an important role in how socio-political systems are viewed and shaped in countries across the globe. Therefore conducting research with a lens that aligns with the local ways of knowing and thinking is critical. When the methods and methodologies align with the ways research is conducted then the inferences that are drawn will have greater benefit for those most greatly affected, the locals. The current research paradigms within learning sciences tend to be grounded in methodologies that developed out of 19th and 20th century educational and social sciences that emerged in the West. This paper examines the need and utility to develop and design research methodologies that aligned with the local ways of knowing and thinking.
