This workshop will provide an introduction to the mixed methods research, which is an approach that combines qualitative and quantitative research for a more complete understanding of research questions.
Understand the foundational concepts underlying mixed methods research;
Develop rigorous mixed methods research questions relevant to their research topic;
Identify appropriate qualitative and quantitative data sources;
Describe 3 core designs and 3 complex mixed methods designs;
Choose one mixed methods design appropriate to their research questions;
Formulate a study title and project aims that reflect a rigorous mixed methods approach to their research questions; and
Accurately describe their mixed methods design via written text and visual diagrams.
This workshop is most effective if participants bring an idea for a mixed methods study to develop through the course.
