LINGUAPOLIS not only engages in theoretical and empirical validation, but primarily considers Educational Engineering as an even richer source of expertise. Educational Engineering is an instructional design model that formulates new working hypotheses in a phased and cyclical manner on the basis of theoretical insights and practical experiences.
Each research activity undertaken by LINGUAPOLIS may be typified as a form of Educational Engineering, whereby the ADDIE model is systematically applied. After the formulation of a working hypothesis, it is tested, not in a laboratory setting, but in practice, in a real situation involving the greatest possible number of actors and factors. After a thorough evaluation, a new working hypothesis is drawn up by testing of data against theoretical and experiential insights. Every project is implemented in loops (versions). For the customer, this is a safe, phased and controllable approach. Each iteration results not only in a concrete, usable solution, but also in output with relevance to research and expertise building.
