ICPSR — Mixed Methods Research: Combining Quantitative and Qualitative Data and Strategies (VIRTUAL)

June 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 3, 2020

NC United States + Google Map

Mixed methods research typically refers to research design and implementation that combines qualitative and quantitative data collection and/or analysis strategies. This course examines best practices, through the review of exemplars and discussion of theoretical approaches, in “mixing” methods and integrating qualitative and quantitative research. The course introduces students to the theory and practice of mixed methods research in the social sciences. In the course we will examine and evaluate specific applications of mixed methods research. Further, course participants are encouraged…

This workshop presents strategies for analyzing and making sense of qualitative data. Both descriptive and interpretive qualitative studies will be discussed, as will more defined qualitative approaches such as grounded theory, narrative analysis, and case study. The course will briefly cover research design and data collection but will largely focus on analysis. In particular, we will consider how researchers develop codes and integrate memo writing into a larger analytic process. The purpose of coding is to provide a focus to…

Using Qualitative Research to Study Social Justice (Online)

January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Online NC United States

This course will address how researchers can use qualitative research to draw attention to underlying mechanisms that define social problems. Once uncovered, deeper understanding of these mechanisms can guide large-scale surveys, direct responses to requests for proposals by private foundations and government agencies, inform policy briefs, and even influence new legislation. In this regard, it is important for qualitative researchers to think beyond simply highlighting problems in order to also develop skills that leverage our work in ways that more…
