Phenomenology has a long history as both a philosophical and methodological approach, with variations of each emerging over the past century. This chapter seeks to support researchers in the field of learning design and technology (LDT) to consider critical aspects and affordances of variant forms of phenomenological inquiry. First, the philosophical foundations of phenomenology are traced to demonstrate the plurality of methodological approaches. Next, the chapter situates and advocates for interpretive and postmodern phenomenological approaches by considering foci that these forms of phenomenology might open up within LDT. Key considerations are explicated regarding data sources, analysis, and other research practices within these approaches.
