Chapter 3Implementing the Multiperspectival Approach (MPA)
A study of art and design communication
This chapter provides a detailed account of the
researcher’s journey as they employ the Multiperspectival
Approach (MPA) to investigate the interplay between
communicative and creative practices within a university art and
design studio. The chapter identifies the key reasons that
attracted the researcher to MPA, the advantages it offered, its
impact on their project, its design and findings, and how MPA
was implemented. It concludes by considering the issues and
challenges that arose in the researcher’s use of MPA and how
these were addressed. Ultimately, the chapter serves to
illustrate the implementation of MPA as a practical ontology and
research heuristic for both traditional Applied Linguistic
studies and those that go beyond the focus on language education
