The application of educational research to practice remains an issue of concern, and yet there has been relatively little consideration of this in relation to reviews of research. While the professional user review hitherto represents the most relevant approach, this involves users applying the findings of an earlier review rather than carrying out an original review. Through a case study, we propose an interpretive approach to reviewing research literature that is fully rooted in practitioner perspectives. We argue that our review methodology maintains a balance between contributions from the research literature and from practitioner perspectives; with both extracted data and practitioner commentary incorporated into our synthesis, alongside a dialogue incorporating alternative voices. Our methodology thus represents a novel way to develop applicable forms of understanding within the field.
