Integrated Mixed Methods: Bridging Qualitative and Quantitative Methods and Results (Online)
September 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:45 pm
This class and waitlist are full. We plan to hold this course again in the spring.
This course will take place over three mornings (9/25/23, 9/27/23, and 9/29/23), 2.75 hours per morning, and will be offered via Zoom. Attendance is required as the course will not be recorded. This class will fill so register early. Only a limited waitlist will be available.
Integrated mixed methods are used to answer questions that necessitate more than one method to achieve a holistic understanding. Combining qualitative and quantitative approaches can enhance conversations about theory, practice, and/or policy. This demanding paradigm requires knowledge, skill, and expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as the art of intentionally integrating the approaches to and findings from each mode of inquiry.
This course focuses on strategies, tips, and best practices to accomplish integration in accessible and effective ways, including:
- Rationales to guide decision-making related to study design and execution
- Conceptual, theoretical, and/or logic models as roadmaps to set the stage for and guide integration
- Analytic strategies that advance frameworks and dynamic processes of connecting, building, merging, embedding, and bridging
This course will count as 7.0 CSS short course credit hours.
