So much goodness in this paper (42 page PDF)! The authors offer "an illustrated example of applying a diverse and reflexive systems oriented design approach" but what they deliver feels like so much more than that. The practice of 'reflexive research' is based on 'methodological plurality,' or "the act of incorporating methods from different disciplines and knowledge domains to expand ways of engaging in complex systems" and based on situated place-based examples. We can see an example of these methods and practices in the current example from this diagram. I'm thinking this isn't just a good way to think about research but also of learning and decision-making in general.
