Mixed methods analysis
A ‘mixed methods’ approach to research design typically involves researchers combining ‘elements of qualitative and quantitative research approaches for the purposes of breadth and depth of understanding and corroboration. In this course, we will examine the key features of this type of research design. We will discuss the foundations of such an approach and the advantages and challenges of this design; explore the different types of mixed method design; critically analyse the challenges associated with the design and implementation of each design type; and the analysis and write-up of mixed method studies. This course is designed for participants with an introductory-level understanding of qualitative and quantitative research techniques. Participants will have an opportunity to develop, or work on their own mixed method study during the course.
