I’m writing the introduction for a research proposal and am trying to express that our approach is “experimental” in the sense that it uses more exploratory and alternative methods rather than that it uses a controlled experiment.

Is the phrase “experimental approach” appropriate in this context? If not, what are alternatives? (Words like “novel” and “exploratory” aren’t quite right.) Which way should that phrase be interpreted in general?
