Mixed Methods Workshop
January 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every 2 days that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until January 31, 2020
This TWO-DAY (1/29/20 and 1/31/20) course equips students to design, conduct, and critique mixed method research. From a pragmatic perspective, we will explore the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of data collection methods, and evaluate strategies for combining them. We will focus on mixed method research designs incorporating in-depth interviews, focus groups, participant observation, archival research, survey interviews, and/or hybrid methods.
The majority of the course will center on research design and data collection issues. Some time will be spent on strategies for analyzing and presenting data from multiple sources.
This course is designed for those who are relatively new to mixed method research, and interested in the principles that should guide it. Participants who come with a specific set of research questions in mind will have opportunities to apply topics of discussion to their own research ideas during the workshop.
