There is a wide variety of ways that researchers have mixed qualitative and quantitative data and/or findings in mixed methods research, including during data collection, analysis, and reporting. In this short course, author of three textbooks that prioritize the role of qualitative methods in mixed methods research, Professor Elizabeth G. Creamer introduces mixed analysis and four core strategies that can be used to mix data from different sources during analysis. Participants can benefit from this workshop without much prior exposure to mixed methods research.

Those completing the short course will be able to:

  1. Identify different strategies to mix data or findings from different sources during analysis.
  2. Transform data by qualitizing quantitative data.
  3. Merge data by generating blended or mixed themes.
  4. Partner mixed method with a qualitative methodology like grounded theory or case study in ways that leverage foundational assumptions of each.
  5. Construct a joint display to generate theoretical insight.
  6. Effectively report the results of mixed analysis.

This course will count as 6.0 CSS short course hours.
