Professor Horne then talks about the methodology used to get to those findings. This methodology, practice based evidence, is the main subject of this lecture it’s benefits and challenges. This is explained as a bottom up approach to research. Professor Horne presents the material clearly and logically. A very interesting and well presented lecture.
