Additional Information: This article explores the epistemological, moral and practical issues facing the adoption of medical models of evidence-based practice in relation to E-Learning. Reviewing recent developments in evidence-based practice, it shows the lack of fit between the positivistic assumptions that define it and the current interpretevist work in the field of ICT and education. It also explores how the divisions of labour expected of evidence-based practice fail to accommodate current pattens of work within this field. Alternative approaches are proposed, including a return to case-based model building as an alternative way of synthesising research.
