Chapter 7: The Enlightened Pen: The Praxis Documentation and Aesthetic
Interpretation (PDAI) Research Model by Dr. Bethany Mickahail & Dr. Kate Andrews
A fresh hybrid research method, the Praxis
Documentation and Aesthetic Interpretation (PDAI) model, as created by
Mickahail (2010), and used to record the lived stories of individual
experiences through oral history and poetic data display is chronicled
in this chapter. The PDAI model is a 4-continual step process:
developing a praxis framework, collecting and documenting oral history
data, creating a poetic representation, and determining resultant themes
and findings. The model is continual because change does not cease but
continues to transform, adjust, and refine into a cycle of striving for
knowledge and excellence.
