Qualitative Approaches to Mixed Methods Research Inquiry: Design & Analysis

This workshop will be useful both to researchers new to using mixed methods and to those interested in extending their use of this approach.  The user-friendly workshop will show participants how to construct research questions that benefit from a qualitatively- driven mixed methods research design and provide opportunities for them to work with data generated with this approach. There will be ample opportunity for small group work, questions and answers, and dialogue throughout. We will provide all participants with handouts to take home with them that we hope will solidify and extend their workshop experience. Bring your research questions with you. Level: Beginner and Intermediate Level
