This course will take place over three mornings (5/15/23, 5/17/23, and 5/19/23), 2.5 hours per morning, and will be offered via Zoom. Attendance is required as the course will not be recorded.
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
